GREAT SOUTHERN

Varietal: Riesling
Current Vintage: 2017 
Bottle Size: 750ml 
Case Size: 12

TASTING NOTES:
A very intense aroma of white floral blossom, lime juice, red apple and underlying
lavender bath salts. A dry, fresh style of Riesling that displays fresh lime and gala apple flavours with a light to medium body and a very persistent finish that lingers well after the wine has left the mouth.
"Ever so succulent. Ripe lime meets lemon rind meets stony mineral. It begins juicy and generous but soon turns dry and steely. At every step, it's delicious." 94 points, James Halliday
"Pale yellow hue and a lifted, fragrant aroma with green herb and lime leaf scents. The palate is juicy and just slightly off-dry. The limy fruit is very intense and concentrated. The wine is a powerful style, which also has ageing potential."  93 points, Huon Hooke
 
WINE REGION:

Great Southern is a vast wine region, stretching for 150km in from the coast at the southern tip of Western Australia. The landscape is scattered with regal stands of jarrah, karri and marri trees against the magnificent granite peaks of the Porongurup range. Great Southern incorporates five official sub-regions: Albany, Denmark, Frankland River, Mount Barker and Porongurup. As a whole, they produce a wide variety of wine styles. The region has earned an excellent reputation for premium Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicate riesling with great longevity from Frankland River, Mount Barker and Porongurup is very highly regarded. Chardonnay is successful throughout, particularly in Albany and Denmark. Spicy Shiraz, classic cabernet sauvignon and merlot are recognised for their fruit intensity and structure. Good examples of pinot noir from cooler sites and sauvignon blanc are also found. Situated almost 400km south of Perth, Great Southern is a large and important wine region.
