Expert Reviews

95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionThe wine's display of lime, Meyer lemon and toast will build slowly but surely over the next 10 years. Surely, because the wine was born with perfect balance and great length, attesting to its ancestry.
95 Points - Ray JordanThere is a delicacy here with lemon and spicy bath salts character as well. This is a superbly structural riesling with tremendous ageing potential. It's all from the Wyjup south block. Has a good fruit concentration in the middle palate with a fine, persistent acid. Slaty tension with wet pebble in here.

94 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real ReviewLight to mid-yellow colour, bright. The bouquet is honeyed and apricotty, stone fruits and lemons, lemon curd and peels. It's fresh and lively, zesty and crisp, the palate juicy and intense and finishing dry and long in the mouth. A smart riesling, ageing gracefully.

How was it made?

A sublime vintage, conducive with all Great Southern varietals in expressing its own distinct regionality. Cool winter conditions followed by early spring rains ensured a saturated soil profile at the commencement of bud burst. Uniform vine growth resulted until November when the warm dry conditions produced perfect flowering conditions. Temperatures remained warm and moderate up until March. Unseasonal high pressure systems dominated the maritime climate throughout March and April. This resulted in mild daily temperatures and cold nights. With no sign of rain fruit was left to hang, developing flavour intensity. The fruit was thus picked at the winemaker’s whim.

Night picked cold fruit, whole berry pressed gently to tank with a careful free run cut. The separated clear juice was racked to tank for a cool fermentation with an inoculated yeast strain. The wine was fermented to complete dryness, then racked from its lees and blended before fining, stabilisation and early bottling to preserve freshness.

Only 1300 bottles made.

Who made it?

Plantagenet Wines embodies the best of the west with its distinctive wines of finesse and elegance. As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is built on expressive regional wines with an extensive history of classic Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling that are famously long-lived plus a deliciously bountiful Chardonnay.

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different price points.
