Product Description

"Typical Porongurp finesse and delicacy; a spotlessly clean, floral bouquet leads into a perfectly balanced palate that progressively builds lime-accented flavour through to the finish and aftertaste."
94 Points James Halliday


Riesling is purity and heartbreak in a glass. There is no truer expression of soil, aspect and climate but at the same time this late ripening prima donna is not forgiving of lesser sites or management. The Porongurup Range is one of the sub-regions of the Great Southern region in WA and home to many mature dry grown Riesling vineyards. Typically the Riesling is later ripening and a little finer with higher acidity from the Porongurups; there is a rain shadow on the north facing slopes that allows for the later ripening on these more elevated sites (High and Dry).

The pristine fruit is pressed immediately and only the free run component with the delicate citrus and floral aromatics is kept. Juice yields are typically only ½ to 2/3rds of any other variety but the quality is fine, racy and delicate without any bitter phenolics extracted from the skins.

The 2011 High and Dry Riesling is intense, nervy and shy on the front palate but grows outstanding lime, white flowers and slatey texture through the middle. The finish is outstanding: exceptional persistence in the mouth long after swallowing. This is a Riesling for now and for 10 years time.
