"Pale straw. Stony citrus and quince aromas convey impressive clarity and thrust. Piercing lime and orchard fruit flavors are filled in and deep, with a tangy mineral bite on the long finish." -90 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar
"Intense aromas of citrus, spice, guava and hints of orange peel, lead into an explosively rich peel floral and guava flavor in the mouth. It begins with a lengthy palate experience followed by spice and minerals and backed by perfectly balanced acid, one of the hallmarks of the season. Green tinges emerge from its brilliant pale straw color." -Importer
"Moorilla's signature white wine. Delicate pale straw with silver and green hues. An intensely aromatic bouquet of lemon blossom, guava, spice and notes of orange peel. The explosion of rich floral, elderflower and guava flavours is followed by ginger, slate characters and an arching backbone of perfectly balanced acid. Crystalline finesse, powerful and delicate all at once. 12+ years." -Winery
"The first vines planted at Moorilla Estate, in 1958 were Riesling. It is the Estate's oldest variety and the wine which cellars the longest. The fruit was sourced from the Berriedale and West Tamar vineyards in Tasmania. The steep St Matthias slopes, on the west bank of the river, afford an excellent sunny northerly aspect, ensuring good ripening. The Berriedale's cooler climate results in exceptionally low yields of intensely flavored fruit with excellent acidity. Low fertility clay and sandstone soil are the dominant feature of the Berriedale vineyard. The grapes for this wine were produced from mature 25 year old, un-irrigated vines from our Berriedale and St Matthias sites." -Importer
This scored 89 points in both the Wine Spectator and the Wine Advocate by Jay Miller.
