What the Experts Say
From the Gullyview Vineyard. I like the texture of these Atlas Rieslings. It’s a highlight, and marks them out as being slightly different.
Lime and lemongrass, slight fennel and spice perfume, subtle funky/smoky character too. It’s juicy and has a fine chalky and lemon pith texture, a slight quinine bitterness, plenty of crunch and interest, and a good long finish. I like it.
93/100 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
It’s hard to go wrong with a Watervale Riesling, and this particularly classy example advances the classic style with notes of preserved lime and plenty of hibiscus to the white-floral perfume typical of this type of wine. Sip this slowly - there’s plenty to discover.
The wine reflects its provenance and the unique house style of Atlas Wines. It’s bright and fresh with classic Watervale aromas of lime and lemongrass, complemented by hints of white flowers, juniper and candied apples. The palate is packed with ripe, concentrated flavours of lemon and lime juice, Granny Smith apple and floral bath salts, with a powerful line of fine acidity giving great structure and length.
