  1. Vinonotebook

    2017 Shaw Vineyard Estate Riesling – Vinonotebook (March 2018)

    Floral and steely, with light lime fruit and blossom, peachy stonefruit and some riper cantaloupe notes and more austere steel wool.
    Ripe with plenty of fruit (still a dry wine) Lime, white peach and just pulling back before a good acid line that sails under the tongue. Finishes with a slightly waxy texture and an oxalis green sour note. Decent drinking now and should age well.

  2. Toni Paterson

    2017 Estate Riesling – Toni Paterson (February 2018)

    Intense lime zest and citrus blossom aromatics. The palate is bright and lemony with a good acid line. I enjoy the wine’s delicacy and restraint. A light-chill is all thats needed. If served ice-cold its charms will remain hidden.

    89/100

  3. David Ellis

    2017 Estate Riesling – David Ellis (November 2017)

    A just-released Shaw Vineyard Estate 2017 Riesling is a classic drop from this maker’s Murrumbateman vineyard in the Canberra premium cool climate wine region, and made all the more classic with a touch of botrytis that’s helped concentrate sugars, fruit acids and wonderful passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours to more than usual prominence.

    And it’s little wonder that owner/winemaker Graeme Shaw is quick to offer how this one’s drawing enthusiastic response from visitors both at cellar door tastings, and over meals in the winery’s Olleyville Restaurant.

    2017 Estate Riesling – QWine (November 2017)

    Canberra Riesling doing the job just fine. Lots of street smarts to this release.
    Pretty scents of bath powder and Bickford’s lime juice. Some kaffir lime juice floats into the mix too.
    Well balanced, fruit and acid play fairly with one another. A squeeze of citrus rolls through before a wash of riverstone minerality and a talc finish. It’s calling for fresh seafood or a scorching day to wash away the heat.
    Drink now. 90/100.

  5. John Rozentals

    2017 Estate Riesling – John Rozentals (November 2017)

    Winemaker Graeme Shaw describes the 2017 vintage as a very normal one, but he’s turned out a decidedly above-average riesling. It’s a fresh dry white laden with floral and citrus aromas, and blessed with a zesty palate — a fine accompaniment to oysters or white-fleshed fish simply grilled and served with a buttery sauce.

  6. Stuart Robinson

    2017 Estate Riesling – Stuart Robinson (October 2017)

    Hints of lime, lime leaf. Background hints that are somewhat more fruitsome: blackcurrant leaf, possibly passionfruit.
    Good punch of flavour and persistence of acid. It’s all about the lime and little else. The juice working in tandem to deliver a Refreshing wine – if a little linear.
    90 points.
