Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Pale straw with lime green hues. Very subtle notes of sweet elderflower, honey puffs and coriander seed float above a base layer of cut lime. The palate sees pineapple, green mango and salted lime intertwine creating an all-encompassing and electric taste experience.
Here at The Bone Line we set a very high standard for our Hellblock Riesling, the condition of the fruit must be impeccable, the concentration of flavour intense and the acid level electric. It was with great joy that the 2019 season gave us the perfect conditions to allow us to make back to back wines. The wine began with the harvest of fruit from our river side terrace sharing the same name. The fruit here was delicate and extremely intense because of meticulously hand working of the vine by the crew and the sheltered environment in which it grows."
4 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"The Boneline Hellblock Riesling 2019 is a restrained yet gently luscious riesling which displays an initial kiss of sweetness that is balanced by crisp acidity which gives a drying, mouth-watering finish. It has lovely purity with lime, saline, oyster-shell and wildflower flavours."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Beautifully fruited and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows lemon/lime peel, Gala apple, nectarine and subtle spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that is focused and refined. The wine offers terrific fruit purity backed by vibrant acidity, finishing long and very appealing. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2026."
4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Already highly appealing, the 2018 vintage is a medium style (21 grams/litre residual sugar). Bright, light lemon/green, it is medium-bodied, with good intensity of citrusy, limey flavours, showing excellent freshness and vigour, and a finely balanced, lingering finish. Best drinking 2021+."
