Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pure pale lemon in colour, the wine’s aromatics speak to our vineyard’s surroundings, showcasing an abundance of orchard fruit and wild flowers. The palate is all at once light with a Spring rain freshness yet still holds weight and complexity.
Ratings
93 POINTS – “Chic, racy, focused. There’s little wonder why Tantalus has so many devoted fans, their Rieslings are their flagship and here is yet another stunning example. It is undeniably pristine, offering crunchy green apples, mineral, apricot, spring blossoms, honey and lemondrops on the nose. Expect amazing tension and concentration juxtaposed with focus and style. It boasts an oily weight with a tangy and lengthy lemon-lime finish. Chic yet entirely gulpable.” Daenna Van Mulligan, June 2016,
Vineyard Notes
At the core is an intense citrus character underpinned by notes of cardamom and apple skin and met alongside roasted pineapple and quince – hallmarks of a very warm growing season. The finish shows classic Tantalus intensity and focus with no shortage of mouth-watering length.
Production Notes
The 2015 growing season gave us record-breaking heat but the balance in our Riesling remained intact. Curiously, once temperatures reach above 35 degrees Celsius, vines enter a dormant protective mode. Our very warm July in particular saw steady and slow ripening as opposed to what one might expect. Cooler September evenings soon arrived and offered a welcome relief as harvest commenced and the ripening phase finished off.
Food Pairing Notes
The acidity makes this a juicy, mouthwatering style that loves to go with Asian food, lighter poultry, and pork dishes.
