 Tasted by chatters on 2/28/2013: Seafood and Riesling supper (My place, world square, sydney): Aromas of lime over lemon, slight minerality. in the mouth there is medium plus acid and the lime flavours are fresh and ripe - the wine is off dry. Very fruity, slight phenolic grip. Very nice - defo in the eminently quaffable! (903 views)
 Tasted by Avid Wino on 2/9/2013 & rated 92 points: Green apple with a tart finish. A squeeze of lemon. Mandarin as it warms in the glass. Too pretty on night one, tart finish too much of a contrast to big floral nose. Better on night two, nose settled and finish less tart, more length with talc and mineral. On night three I swear there's both apricot and peach. Can't help but wonder if there's a splash of viognier in this, which would explain the lifted aromatics. Must admit on night one I was underwhelmed by this, but at end of bottle on night three, quite captivated, lots going on. One to put away for a few years. (775 views)
 Tasted by CamWheeler on 1/12/2013 & rated 89 points: Riesling Rampage: Strongly floral nose, with some apple and pear. The palate starts off with ripe fruits but finishes with strong cleansing acidity. Liked this a little bit better than when I last tried it, but not up there with the best from 2012 for me so far.

 Tasted by brisbane piefan on 1/2/2013 & rated 93 points: Very pale yellow/green colour. Nose was fresh and palate was zingy with balanced acid, apples (green) and limes. Will age for some time I think. Have one left stashed away - wish I had more. (822 views)
 Tasted by G.M. on 10/9/2012 & rated 87 points: Clonakilla Dinner 2012 (Moon Under Water, Melbourne): Clearly a young wine, currently lacking the complexity of the older wines tasted alongside. Fresh and crisp with a good line. I don't have enough experience with Riesling to know how this will develop compared to the other wines, but Tim appeared quite happy with the wine. (1271 views)
 Tasted by chatters on 10/4/2012: Langtons cellar club tasting october 2012 (Roof Terrace Australian Museum): pale lemon green. Plenty of acid, fruity and a touch of residual sugar. Very nice. (415 views)
 Tasted by CamWheeler on 9/15/2012 & rated 88 points: Canberra Cellar Doors (Canberra Wine Region, Australia): Nicely floral nose with green apples as well. Palate is strongly acidity driven and bright. Good and will get better, but I can't see it being great. (836 views)
