Taylors St Andrews Riesling 2017

"Very interesting: Taylor's says the grapes are harvested, pressed and chilled below 10 degrees C within 15 minutes of harvest. That's some sort of speed record, even if the vineyard is adjacent to the winery. Opens quietly then rapidly gains flavour and length as it moves towards the lovely, juicy lime-infused finish." 95 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2018.

"Machine-harvested, no frills cool stainless steel fermentation. It all lies in the fruit selection, here a block planted with a Pewsey Vale clone. It is a very good wine with purity and intensity underpinning the vibrantly fresh palate and long finish. Citrus/orange blossom aromas and flavours are just as they should be." 95 points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2017.

"Often held back for release with 5 years bottle age, but this already has such finesse and balance that part is on the market, a decision validated by the trophy for Best Riesling, Melbourne Wine Awards '14; lemon, lime and apple blossom tell of the flavours to follow." 96 points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2014.
