2013 McGuigan The Shortlist Eden Valley Riesling

Felix Gentle

"Lime pith, kero notes, steely/stony minerals. The palate is still linear and focused up front, broadening at the finish with a wonderful citrus burst. Lovely."

Trophy winning Eden Valley Riesling, with more than six years bottle age, for under $25 a bottle? Where do we sign?

This McGuigan Riesling is a real surprise packet too - Neil McGuigan is probably better known for reds (and Chardonnay) than Riesling, but this lovely, aged white is so tasty, with the whispers of nutty bottle age over the top of the limey palate making for a real mouthful.

Yum.

Expert Reviews

96 Points - International Wine Challenge - Regional TrophyLovely herbal, lime blossom, pink florals. Leave dry with herbals, rose and jasmine. Great grippy frame. Quiet and understated but very well done.
94 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionQuartz-white; this is a particularly finely boned riesling, with enough of the skeletal framework to ensure the lemon blossom aromas and lemon flavours will burst into song a few years down the track. The low alcohol provides the freshness evident today, and most unlikely to dissipate in anything less than 10 years, when even better things will be in store.
Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 - SilverVery toasty smokey nose, white peach, apricot, toast and petrol hints. Savoury palate, grilled nut, marzipan, lime zest acidity, floral finish.

How's it taste?

Lime with complex kerosene notes and linear mineral structure. The palate is focused up front, broadening at the finish with a wonderful citrus burst. Really fresh for an aged white.

How was it made?

The McGuigan Shortlist Riesling is a perfect example of a top Eden Valley Riesling. The fruit for this wine comes from two vineyards in the Eden Valley Region, with the warm sunny days allowing flavour ripening while the cool nights help retain natural acids in the fruit to allow for the Rieslings great ageing ability. The grape must was chilled on arrival and immediately pressed lightly in an air bag press to minimise bruising. The juice was then fermented cool to retain natural aromas and the wine lightly fined and clarified before bottling. This wine will comfortably cellar for 10+ years. In total, this wine has won 2 trophies and 15 Gold Medals on the wine show circuit. The most recent win was a trophy and gold medal at the 2019 International Wine Challenge in London!
