Tasting Notes

Winemaking and Viticulture

Riesling is an aromatic grape variety displaying flowery, almost perfumed aromas as well as high acidity. This classic dry Riesling shows all these attributes. Much of the unique character of this wine is developed in the vineyard, low yielding spur-pruned vines with fruit harvested in the cool of the night to ensure fruit is delivered at temperatures less than 20 degrees.

The fruit is then lightly pressed and drained and only the free run juice is used to produce this elegant wine. All the fruit is sourced solely from Shaw Wines Murrumbateman vineyard, an area renowned for production of premium cool climate wines Stelvin closures are used for freshness and to ensure long term quality.

    Delicate herbal tones of freshly-cut grass and snowpeas lead into a gentle palate that is fine and crisp. It has a lovely drive too, so don’t be too fooled by its delicate nature. Drink to 2029. 90/100 points.

    The Murrumbateman region is proving an exciting, if somewhat underappreciated, one for a number of varieties, not least Riesling. The town might sit just outside the ACT border but the district is seen as part of the Canberra wine region.

    The grapes are from low yielding spur-pruned vines, which are harvested in the cool of the night at temperatures less than 20 degrees, to ensure the fruit is as fresh as possible. Only free run juice is used here. This is a limpid pale yellow with aromas of bath salts, musk, lavender, florals and citrus. Nice flick of acidity helps carry the flavours the full journey of the wine. Seriously good intensity and persistence here, but there is always the impression of elegance. Attractive talc notes and chalk emerge on the palate, along with limes. Nicely balanced, this should easily drink well for at least five to eight years.
    Drink 2022 – 2030. 93 points.

    Brent Lello, Sixty Second Swirl, Yass Valley Times (December 2021)
    I think we all know by now that Riesling owns its right-royal place in the Yass Valley region. The ripping “rizzas’ from our region that I have tried from the 2021 vintage, have so far led me to believe that this year is a cracking year for the variety.
    Shaw Wines is a great proponent of Riesling and the subject of this week’s “swirl” – the Shaw Wines Estate Riesling 2021 – is a delightfully delicious drop.
    This Riesling is an illuminating, pale straw colour in the glass. A swirl reveals to me fragrant, floral aromas of citrus blossoms with ripe lemons and an alluring scent of musk. On the palate, it’s a dangerously easy-drinking style with juicy lemon and lime flavours and a lovely balance between acid and fruit sweetness, leading to a delightful, lifted finish.
    We enjoyed our bottle with Chinese Crispy Chicken with Lemon Sauce but would go really well with a tray of south coast oysters or grilled flathead fillets with a lemon, caper and butter sauce.

    Fruity, light-bodied character with aromas of peach juice, lime, lemon and flowers. Elegant palate with lime and lemon flavours and a great acidity with a balanced long finish. Awarded Silver Medal.
