The '12 vintage had one overarching feature of high quality riesling in its traditional strongholds of the Clare and Eden Valleys, yet its expression varied considerably from one maker to the next.

The '12 vintage had one overarching feature of high quality riesling in its traditional strongholds of the Clare and Eden Valleys, yet its expression varied considerably from one maker to the next. Here lime juice flavours leap out of the glass, coating the mouth, yet supported by fine acidity.

Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of orange, pear skin and white flowers, with a gingery topnote. Dry and sharply focused, offering incisive citrus fruit and floral flavors that are underscored by chalky minerality. Finishes dry and long, with resonating orange zest and jasmine qualities. 12% alcohol here. - Josh Raynolds

The 2012 Traditionale Riesling offers lovely and a little exotic citrus fruit aromas with lemon-lime, zest, some crushed stones and white pepper with nuances of dill seed and honeysuckle. Crisp, clean and dry, the palate is more forward than usual but still a bit tight throughout the long and zingy finish. It is approachable but will drink best from 2014 to 2022+. - LPB

Light and silky, with pretty pear and quince flavors set on a delicate frame that lets the finish play out with finesse. Shows depth and delicacy. Drink now through 2020.
