2017 Mount Majura Riesling

Canberra District, NSW

One of Canberra's "quiet achiever" producers with a cracking Riesling release.



About The Wine

The Mount Majura Riesling should be on the radar for any serious Riesling collector.

With their vineyards sitting at over 650 metres above sea level, Mount Majura specialise in premium, cool-climate wines that don’t bust the bank and have been impressing the critics for quite a few years now.

The Riesling is planted in the coolest, most south-easterly facing of their vineyards atop ancient volcanic soils. The struggle that the vines undergo to produce this incredible fruit is one of the key aspects contributing to the sheer quality of this wine. 

The 2017 release picked up a huge 96 points from James Halliday. It's a scintillating Riesling and a great advertisement for the Canberra District.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Canberra riesling, when as good as this, transcends its armour of citrus flavours to take on a complex whir of pepper, jasmine and fennel, meshing with the juicy spout of crunchy acidity and mineral alike. This hits all the right notes and the end sensation is one of a thrumming joyousness, bounce and compelling length. Palpably dry despite a balancing dash of residual sugar." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Like riesling? Like Canberra District riesling? Like high quality white wine? Pitch perfect. Tight, tangy, zingy white of piercing citrus fruit character and summery freshness. It’s all Warhead lollies and lime juice, some more florals in perfume perhaps, but the gist is we’re deep in citrus territory with all the accompanying refreshing feel. Amongst that tension, a light drizzle of ‘mineral feel’, just so and delicious. Great drinking here." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
