2020 Plantagenet 'Angevin' Riesling

ULTRA PREMIUM

2020 Plantagenet 'Angevin' Riesling

Vibrant lemon blossom, lime, wet quartz, a touch of flint, white flower petals on the nose. Zesty lime and quartz, fine talcy phenolics framing the palate citrus fleshy texture with fine zesty and long persistent finish with saline, mineral edge. 

Vintage 2020 - 'a little bit different from the norm'

The 2020 Australian summer was the hottest on record. All Australian wine regions were affected, some greater than others. The Mount Barker region was no exception with significant temperature variations against the long term average. This advanced vine development, condensing the growing season and forwarding the commencement of vintage to be 4 weeks early than the norm. 

The hot daytime temperatures reduced berry expansion, producing fruit with a depth of flavour and colour intensity. This vintage was strong in quality although perhaps not a reflection of the regional terroir. The nights were warm, increasing the overall heat acumination, resulting in bigger more rounded Shiraz and Chardonnay wines. But still retaining the elegance you would expect from one of Australia’s premium wine regions.

 

95 Points + Special Value - Erin Larkin, 2022 Halliday Awards, August 2021

"Fruit from Mount Barker. This is powder-fine and racy with concentrated fruit power. Quite an astoundingly beautiful and pure wine of poise, line and length." - 2021 Erin Larkin, The Halliday Wine Companion

GOLD - WA Wine show Awards 2020

5 Stars - Winestate Magazine

95 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"It's exquisitely styled, showing Granny Smith apple, lime cordial and white flesh nectarine notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that delivers outstanding fruit purity and poise. Refined and stylish with a graceful future ahead." Reviewed Sept. 2020 (Sam Kim)

92 Points - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

93 Points - "This has a striking purity and such fresh citrus-fruit aromas, as well as some savoury, mineral notes. The palate is sleekly driven by brisk acidity that carries a fresh lime juice flavour. Bang!" - Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
