Another great Woodstock Riesling, capturing the very best flavours from the free-run juice of the grape.
Grape Varieties: Riesling
Drink By: 2013
James Halliday: 89 points
Crisp acidity, zesty fresh aromatics and more mid-palate flavour is the style Woodstock strive to achieve. The 2009 Riesling is a delicate wine displaying citrus notes, grapefruit pith and a granny smith acidity on the palate.
Enjoy with thinly sliced salmon carpaccio drizzled with lemon juice, fresh extra virgin olive oil and salted Ligurian capers or Silago Punctata (King George Whiting) any way you like it.
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion: "Light straw-green; crushed lemon leaf and talc aromas, then a bone-dry, lemon-accented palate with good natural acidity from very early picking." 89 points
Whilst most growers in McLaren Vale have pulled out Riesling vines in favour of more profitable varieties, Woodstock are proud of this Riesling. The Riesling vines were planted in 1973 on the hilltop of Woodstock Estate, with cool breezes, white sandy soils and a north facing slope.To ensure the delicate flavours of the Riesling variety is preserved, the grapes are picked early while there is still good natural acidity and deliberately harvested in the cool of the night to retain freshness. Only free-run juice is used to ensure the purity of the Riesling grape is captured.
Woodstock wines have been created by both Scott Collett and Ben Glaetzer since 1999; Scott in the vineyards, Ben in the cellars and jointly in the tasting room. Their philosophy is to capture the essence of McLaren Vale, ensuring absolute quality at every stage from the vineyards to the bottle.

The vibrant flavours are spot on the money. Dangerously drinkable.
