Handpicked Wines Trial Batch Riesling 2020, Tasmania

by | Sep 16, 2021

Inviting nose of freshly squeezed limes with a mineral slate core. Fresh, zesty palate with a intense middle palate producing that wonderful Germanic ‘extract’ quality. This wine is similar in style and flavour to a VDP Grosses Gewächs (without the higher alcohol and price!) The wine has high acidity which is balanced by a touch of residual sugar, achieving an overall dryness. This is an exciting wine sourced from the Tamar Valley.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
