Expert Reviews

92 Points - Campbell Mattinson - Halliday's Wine CompanionIt's a quartz-like riesling with lemon zest and sorbet characters searing through the palate. Tension is the order of the day; it's like a wire strung tight. It works beautifully now for its mouthwatering qualities but even a little extra time in bottle will be beneficial.

How's it taste?

Attractive lemon sherbet characters with a fresh, pithy citrus aroma. A fine dry wine with beautifully pure and delicate lemon fruit flavours. This wine has good length of flavour and a crisp, clean finish.

How was it made?

West Cape Howe's Regional Range Riesling is sourced from selected parcels of fruit from their Langton vineyard in Mt Barker. Riesling thrives in this region and produces a delicate, crisp dry wine with the zesty, citrus fruit characters typical of this cool climate variety. Enjoy as a young wine with fresh seafood and Asian cuisine, now and over the next 8 years.

Who made it?

Located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, West Cape Howe was named after a famous coastal landmark nearby. It was founded in 1997 by Brenden and Kylie Smith before being sold to Gavin Berry (ex-Plantagenet) and partners. West Cape Howe source fruit from specific vineyards, and sometimes specific plots, throughout the maritime-influenced Great Southern wine region. Premium parcels of fruit come from their Langton vineyard, planted in 1978. It has some of the most mature vines in the whole Great Southern area. Senior winemaker Gavin Berry prides himself on creating innovative wines that reflect the diversity of the Great Southern region. He makes wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, to name just a few. The wine styles vary from fresh and fruity, under the Western Australian label, to wines with a more regional focus, under the Great Southern label.
