2023 Great Southern Riesling

2023 Great Southern Riesling

Harvest: 23-03-2023 | Bottled: 09-06-2023 | Alc: 12.0% | pH: 3.13 | T.A.: 6.8g/L
Fruit was machine harvested over two picks. Free run juice only. Cool ferment in stainless steel tank with inoculated yeast.

Typical Great Southern Riesling aromas of zesty citrus characters are backed by floral notes. 

3drops Riesling is known for its vibrant and aromatic profile. The front of the palate is generous with lime and grapefruit characters, backed by subtle mineral and herbal notes. The combination of fruit flavours, acidity, and mineral nuances, harmoniously come together to create a wine that is both vibrant and refined.

The wine has a tightly wound palate structure which provides length, persistence, and a crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. The wine’s acidity and structure will allow it to develop over many years.

3drops Riesling is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed on its own, or paired with seafood, Asian cuisine, or light salads. Alternatively cellar for at least ten years for the wine to show some great honeyed aged Riesling characters.

At checkout a 10% discount will be applied to a 12 bottle order of this wine.

"Great Southern riesling is a superb example of the variety thanks to the natural balance of varietal fruit flavours and shimmering acidity, perfectly captured by winemaker Rob Diletti. Add in purity and you have this wine. What more could anyone ask for?"

  •  2022 vintage - 95 points James Halliday, The Weekend Australian, January 2023

"Night harvested, pressed immediately, with cool fermentation in tank. The buoquet is gently floral - citrus and apple blossom - but there is nothing genntle about the palate, which is intense and very persistent thanks to its rapier- like acidity and overall purity. Drink to 2037."

"A deliciously mouth-filling, succulent wine for a dry riesling from this appellation with stacks of nectarine, white fruit and mandarin orange fruit. Lovely texture on the palate and a long finish in which the acidity is beautifully integrated. Drink or hold. Screw cap."

"Riesling remains the best value dry white wine variety. This is a classically styled refreshing, highly aromatic example. “Talcy” aromas, white-lillies, pink grapefruit, lime zest. The palate drinks beautifully. Crisp and invigorating without the austerity of some young Rieslings. Nicely rounded out on finish."

  • 2022 vintage - 95 points Ray Jordan, The WA Wine Review.

"The Rieslings from 3drops have become something of a bellwether for the region. And this is another that points to some outstanding Rieslings in the Great Southern. Has a crunchy, juicy palate that is such joyous drinking. Lime and lemon scents on the nose with that spicy Great southern character. Long palate with a slightly talcy feel. Cellar 10 years."
