2021 Swinney Riesling
Mike Bennie, www.winefront.com.au, Aug 2021
A whole bunch pressed riesling with time on lees. It’s from the excellent Powderbark vineyard of Swinney. When I see the name Swinney a Victorian era detective comes to mind.
Pretty perfume of jasmine, lemon-lime Splice ice blocks, lemon sorbet, almond, fresh milk, struck flint. Lovely start. Soft in the palate but with a very, very racy core of limey, zesty acidity, so very refreshing in feel with tension and precision on hand. It belts through the palate, a whip crack of zingy tang and sorbet-like mouth-watering pucker. Great regional character, good detail, bright and oh so vibrant. Acid hounds line up! 93+ pts
