2017 Poacher's Ridge Riesling

Great Southern, WA

Understated yet undeniable Great Southern Riesling from a scarcely known but really great boutique producer.



About The Wine

Poacher's Ridge is a small, family-owned winery with a tight focus on producing terroir-driven wines from the Great Southern.

It should come as no surprise that their Riesling is top notch. It was made by the safe hands of Rob Diletti (2015 James Halliday Winemaker of the Year) in the Castle Rock Estate winery. On handling wines like this, Rob says, "I rely on the individuality of the fruit, but I treat the wine as if it was my own."

The 2017 Poachers Ridge Riesling received 95 points from James Halliday, a great score for a wine at this price.

For now or for the cellar, this zippy, concentrated, and delicious Riesling is sure to over-deliver.


Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"This tightly wound wine is all about the future and its place. Yes it can be enjoyed now, but in 5 years time it will be singing from the rooftops as the lime juice flavours will have deepened and the length increased. Its future is underwritten by the simultaneous release of its '07 sibling." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
