2012 Glaetzer-Dixon überblanc Riesling

Nick Glaetzer was Gourmet Traveller's 2011 Winemaker of the year and also took home the Jimmy Watson award for his 2010 Mon Pere Shiraz. The name überblanc comes from a 2001 harvest Nick experienced in Germany with Stepan Mueller at Weingut Eugen Mueller. Grapes for this Riesling were sourced from both the Tamar and Coal Valley regions of Tasmania.   

It Displays a lovely subtle nose with kaffir lime and a bit of green apple. A well structured Riesling with great minerality, length, and intensity. Drinking very well now, but will no doubt improve over time in the cellar.
