Grand Barossa Dry Riesling 2012
Tasting Notes

Our house style is classic and refined, combining both traditional and modern winemaking techniques to make superb handcrafted wines of complexity and intensity.

Grand Barossa Riesling displays all the delicacy, elegance and finesse that can be achieved from this noble variety.

Aromas of lemon and lime blossom lead to bright citrus flavors on the palate with refreshing acidity.

Light & tangy, with lime and white pepper notes complemented by a hint of green apple as the finish lingers.  Shows depth & persistence. Drink now through to 2018.  Harvey Steiman - Wine Spectator
Top 100 Outstanding Values
Review by: Wine Spectator
Grand Barossa Dry Riesling 2012 was awarded a place Wine Spectator's Top 100 Outstanding Values, one of only two Australian white wines to feature on the list. The list is selected from more than 16 000 new releases, which are narrowed down based on the criteria of quality, value, availability and X-factor. It is a wonderful result for the Barossa and Australian wine. Château Tanunda winemaker Stuart Bourne remarks: “ Riesling is truly the understated genius of white varieties. Many consumers still perceive that Riesling will be a sweet wine, but this crisp and dry style from the Barossa is a shining example of what can be one of the most food and people friendly wine varieties and styles on the planet. Fresh, clean and crisp”
