Trophy for Champion Riesling - Royal Easter Show Wine Awards 2017
Gold Medal - Royal Easter Show Wine Awards 2017
You just can't beat Waipara Riesling and that was most certainly the case at this year's Royal Easter Show. This gorgeous wee number from Mount Brown topped many Rieslings from all around the country to take out the Trophy for Champion Riesling for 2017 and as well as that, this wine sure takes the cake for top value too. This accolade adds to the growing show success of Mount Brown's wines across a number of varieties. This Riesling is just off dry at 9g/l residual sugar and is bright and juicy with a fine textural line and clear fruit focus. 
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, December 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Very bright, pale straw colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very fresh , tight and elegantly concentrated with soft aromas of lime fruit along with exotic white florals and nuances of sherbet with honeysuckle, unfolding a little waxiness and steel mineral elements. This has lovely clarity and purity of expression. Medium-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate possesses a tight core of bright and aromatic lime fruit entwined with exotic white florals, along with nuances of honeysuckle and minerals. The mouthfeel is vibrant and lively with crisp underlying acidity and the wine follows a very fine-textured, drying line. The exotic fruit flavours unfold to fill the mouth and carry to a long, lingering fragrant finish. This is a tightly bound off-dry Riesling with a core of exotic lime and floral fruit with honied and mineral elements on a crisp, fine palate. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 5+ years. Fruit from the ‘Limeloader’ vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 9 g/L RS."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"​Pristine and elegantly lifted, the inviting bouquet shows white stone fruit, lemon peel, red apple and floral aromas. It is juicy and vibrant on the palate, and displays excellent fruit focus and fine texture, wonderfully enhanced by subtle sweetness and juicy acidity. This brilliantly priced riesling is beautifully styled and immensely likable. At its best: now to 2020."
