Best’s Riesling 2013 White


Riesling vines were first planted as part of Henry Best’s ‘Nursery Block’ vineyard in the 1860s. From subsequent plantings in 1944 and 1978, Riesling has become a significant part of their regime.

The Riesling vines from Great Western produce flavorsome, elegantly structured, spectacularly age-worthy Rieslings which stand confidently alongside some of the most outstanding Australian examples of the variety. In recent times, the style has evolved to match the continental climatic conditions to a beautifully balanced wine with texture and aromatics.

Region: Great Western, Victoria
Grape Variety: Riesling
Alcohol: 11%
Winemaker: Justin Purser

COLOUR: Pale straw with green and silver hints

NOSE: Lifted aromas of kaffir lime, guava and jasmine with a background of red apple and lime zes

PALATE: Fine lime flavours with a mouth coating texture and a fresh and lingering steely finish.

The Rieslings of Best's have a proven ability to mature gracefully for 20 years or more. This example is no exception and its youthful freshness is a good sign for its long life in the cellar. It will gather complex toasty aromas and flavours as the years pass. Enjoy with fish and chips by the sea in summer or a spicy fish curry by a fire in winter.
