About The Wine

The Great Southern has become a true haven for the value wine shopper. 

So much great wine being made in the West and with a string of happy vintages under their belt of late, even the lower price point wines deliver a lot of bang for your buck.

The Sum Riesling punches a class or two above its weight. It's sourced from good sites across the Mt Barker region and for well under $20, this is just about all you could want in a crisp dry white. Bargain hunters take note.


Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Has a little more colour than some, but no cause for concern. This is a high quality riesling, with a floral/blossom bouquet, and a collage of lime and lemon fruit on the palate. The X-factor derives from its tactile qualities that come through clearly on the back-palate and lingering aftertaste, the intensity of the flavours running all the way through to the finish." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

In the glass the colour hints at golden straw. The aromatics of this wine reflect the blending of the two great Riesling areas: Mt Barker gives rose petals and jasmine overlying crushed limes, whilst Frankland River contributes exciting grapefruit zest with hints of spice. These flavours carry onto the palate with the lime and grapefruit dancing across slatey natural acid to a satisfyingly dry finish. As with most Great Southern Rieslings this wine is very attractive and approachable in its youth, however for those with patience will be rewarded from 6-8 years careful cellaring.
