Small Wonder Riesling 2022


Great to see so many Tassie wines making it to the mainland these days. For too long, they were a local delicacy only. This delightful Riesling comes from a patch of vines in the Tamar Valley, now 24 years of age, grown on deep granite soils at a higher than usual elevation.

Gentle pale lemon yellow in colour, the flavours here stand out – spices, lemons, orange rind with a tiny touch of the tropicals and a whiff of honey on the finish. Bright fruit here and a lovely fine line of vibrant acidity which provides poise and serious length with immaculate balance. This is an excellent Riesling, full of energy, which will provide appealing drinking for at least a decade.
