Vintage 2012 will be remembered, on the whole, as an extrodinary vintage in Tasmania. Growing conditions were simply perfect and produced wines of outstanding intensity, depth and length.
VGR denotes “Variable Grams Residual” natural grape sugar, which means we stop the fermentation early to balance a higher level of residual grape sugar with the natural acidity of the wine. This wine shows a nose redolent with lime juice, floral notes and a touch of honey. The palate is exceptionally well balanced, smooth and full bodied and seamless, highlighting the Meyer Lemon fruit. Despite its luscious palate, this Riesling has a refreshing finish and is ideal with seafood and Asian style cuisine.

And a note from Huon Hooke:
Light, bright yellow colour. A beautiful, hauntingly fragrant aroma, quite Germanic in style - Mosel-ish, indeed. Orange blossom; poached peach. It's delicate and lean, refined and subtle in the mouth, with high acidity and only modest sweetness. Superb balance and length: an outstanding wine. 14/1/2014
