Seven sensational bone dry Rieslings

Howard Park, Museum Release, Mount Barker Riesling, Great Southern Australia, 2013

Much of great Riesling’s appeal emerges as the wine slowly ages, and that’s why it’s wonderful to find older vintages of this wine from skilled producers, perfectly stored.
One exciting find that showed all the delicious traits of mature Riesling in our most recent tasting was a ‘Museum Release’ Riesling from Howard Park wines in Australia.
Taken from the 2013 vintage, seven years worth of bottle-age had brought plenty of nutty complexity to this Riesling, even though the citrus freshness one might expect of a much younger wine was still evident.

What the judges said:
A lovely Riesling mixing flavours of lightly-burnt toast, a touch of lemon and lime fruit, along with a hint of petrol. The wine ends with a firm acid-fresh finish, and the overall style is suggestive of a good, complex, mature dry Riesling.
