Mountadam, a proud estate, has surged back into top gear over the last few years, crafting some truly stellar wines. I love the use of oak here. Not shy, following 12-14 months in barrique, it nevertheless serves as an adjunct, toning the cavalcade of stone fruit flavours while providing welcome signposts for the savoury, exceptionally long, solidsy/nutty finish. The acid is a plume. Juicy and palate-whetting. As Burgundian as Australia gets.

Crafted from Riesling vines planted in 1968, on Mountadam's western vineyard, this Riesling expresses lifted floral aromas.  It has clean crisp citrus flavours and delicate minerality.

'Exceptional riesling! Bravo! A seam of transparent, juicy acidity transports yuzu spice, grapefruit pulp, nashi gelato and lemon drop flavours long. Mellifluous. Graceful. A sophisticated spellbinding wine. Fresh, but nothing tangy, nor hard.'

'Superlative gris in the context of Australia, playing off the estate's highly skilled hand when it comes to eking out textural complexity and interplay of freshness, flavour and chew. The usual stream of apple and pear sparks curiosity more because of the phenolic grip and savoury aura, finishing with a hint of marzipan. More Alsatian than domestic. All for the better.'
