About The Pack

Riesling is one of the great white grapes. 

The versatility of this variety sees it excel around the country. 

Here we have six of the most delicious examples we've come across recently. There's Riesling here from all corners of the country made in a wide array of styles from some of the very best in the business.

Check it out - Australian Riesling is a beautiful thing.

2018 Ravensworth Riesling

Those that have ever tasted the exquisite wines from the Clonakilla stable should know that most of them have been touched by the hands of Ravensworth owner/winemaker/butcher/purveyor of smoked meats, Bryan Martin.

The Ravensworth project is a chance for him to captain his own ship. The wines are some of the best value in the country.

This is a scintillating expression of Riesling. Nothing fancy (apart from a small component made in ceramic egg). Just amazing fruit made with a gentle and precise touch. It was no surprise to us that we loved this, as we have loved everything we have tried from Bryan recently.

Our only gripe is that he never makes enough.

2018 Mac Forbes RS8 Riesling

The Mac Forbes Rieslings are built little differently to the average Australian Riesling.

Where most producers now-a-days look for bone dry Riesling as their style staple, Mac isn't afraid of a little residual sugar. For him, it's all about getting finding the best balance for each wine, and with the tight granite soils of Strathboogie giving the fruit an intense minerality, Mac feels a touch of R/S puts this nicely back in balance.

This is Mac's driest Riesling this year with the 8 grams of sugar/litre that remains giving a lovely fruit weight to the palate whilst maintaining freshness.

It's long, fine and full flavoured, something approachable now but that will definitely do well with some time in the cellar.

2018 Stargazer Riesling

 Sam Connew grows her own Riesling on the Palisander vineyard, in Coal River Valley, TAS.

It's an exciting development for Sam and her brand, now having viticultural control over her fruit. The first releases have been excellent. The 2018 season was warmer than usual for Tasmania, the acids in this Riesling less severe and the more generous in fruit flavour.

The thumbprint of Tasmanian terroir shines through regardless, but there's possibly more joy to had in this wine in its youth than usual. Sam works lovely texture into the wine, utilising a touch of skin contact, some lees stirring and a dab of sweetness to allow the wine to find balance in its youth.

This is a classy Riesling with a plethora of personality.

2018 Ochota Barrels Kids Of The Black Hole Riesling

The mysteriously named "Kids of the Black Hole" is a Riesling with charisma oozing from every vinous pore.

The fruit is sourced from a unique vineyard high in the Adelaide Hills. According to Taras, it was hand-picked in the "window where mouth-watering natural acidity is in perfect balance...".

There are no tricks in the winemaking, it's clean and pure with the signature Ochota Barrels attack in the mouth. It comes as no surprise if you've tried his Gewurz but the man knows his way around an aromatic white.

Only 1888 bottles made. Jump on this while you can.

2018 Rieslingfreak No.3 Clare Valley Riesling

The Rieslingfreak No. 3 is John Hughes' outstanding value Clare Valley Riesling.

The Clare Valley is John's home. This wine captures the essence of the region. This comes from John's home vineyard, it's the wine he watches closest from vine to bottle.

Firm, steely but with a generosity that makes this a delicious drink now or primed for decades in the cellar. An absolute bargain and a must have for all lovers of Australian Riesling.

2018 Brave New Wine Sunshine & Hercules Riesling

The wines of Andries and Yoko at Brave New Wine have been thrilling drinkers all over the country this year.

Their unique expressions of Great Southern wines are receiving loads of attention. And rightfully so, these are minimalistic wines with tonnes of character and are impossible to stop drinking to the very last drop.

The Sunshine & Hercules Riesling was picked from a vineyard in Mt Barker. The fruit spent a few hours on skins before being sent to a combination of ceramic egg and new French oak to complete its ferment.

This is not your typical Great Southern Riesling, it's electric and a little cloudy. An intriguing and thirst inducing style of Riesling that should excite the curious wine enthusiast.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?
