About The Wine

There is no other way to say it, if you like Riesling, hey, if you like white wine at all, then this goes straight into the "MUST BUY" column.

According to James Halliday, this is the best value Riesling in the country this year. 

It was named in the top five Rieslings in the country this year, picking up a massive 98 points from Mr. Halliday. But that's not its first moment in the spotlight, it won the Trophy at the 2017 Limestone Coast Wine Show and has been featured in the Adelaide Review and by Windsor Dobbin, seemingly everyone who taste this sees the ludicrous value to be had.

For value for money in Australian wine, it doesn't get much better than this.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Wow. This is positively breathtaking, the complex spray of citrus flavours impacting the second the wine enters the mouth, and linger long after the finish. The citrus is unsweetened green grapefruit juice and zest, acidity a given but nonetheless playing an important role." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

DDS review

"Aromas and flavours of grapefruit and lime come to the fore along with hints of lemon thyme, Christmas lilies, crushed stone, almond paste and the lightest of herbal notes. Focused and energetic on the palate with a precise flow, a tight, mineral framework and a lovely wash of grapefruit and citrus as the wine trails away. Quite lovely." - Dave Brookes (The Adelaide Review)

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Ellis family vineyards lie in the Mount Gambier GI, located in the Kongorong area southwest of Mount Gambier. The proximity to the Southern Ocean provides the coolest maritime climate of mainland Australia, this cool climate extends the ripening of fruit throughout Autumn, ideal for accumulation of flavour and optimum ripening.

The vineyards are planted in fractured Limestone, this flinty surface contributes to the mineral elements and the hint of gun smoke character in the wine.
