The 2019 Singlefile Great Southern Riesling is a product of near perfect vintage in one of Australia's premier Riesling regions. This delivers typically lifted aromatics of apple, blossom and lime notes, while the palate shows a softly textured, crisp style with subtle mineral undertones and a tight crisp finish. Another sensational Riesling from Singlefile that's already attracted high praise, this offers rare value drinking at this discounted price.

"96 Points. The scented bouquet is full of Granny Smith apple blossom aromas augmented by lemon/lime citrus fruit, the offer bound and packaged by minerally acidity, and you will know this before it begins its journey along the palate to cleanse the aftertaste. $25.00. Date when tasted: 18 Sep 2019 12.4% alc. Drink By: 2034"- James Halliday, Top 100 Wines of 2019.

"96/100. Pale yellow colour with bright green edges. The nose is intense - lemon essence, white flowers and a germanic wild honey note. The lemon brightness carries to the palate, pristinely-fruited and bone-dry, though possessing lovely length and a pleasant grapefruit bitter finish. Just delicious. Drink 2019 - 2031" - Nick Butler, The Real Review, September 2019.

Vineyards & Winemaking: In the Great Southern, 2019 delivered excellent growing conditions, with winter and spring being reasonably dry and summer holding cooler temperatures.

The parcels of free run juice underwent a long and slow cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank immediately after pressing to preserve the fruit character. Gentle lees stirring was carried out to add subtle texture. The wine was bottled in July 2019.

The Wine: The colour is light with a green tinge, the aromatics display apple blossom and lime tones. The palate shows a softly textured, crisp style with subtle mineral undertones and a tight crisp finish. It is anticipated in time this wine will develop a stone-line minerality and poached citrus richness whilst retaining its linear acidity.
