Description

Henschke "Julius" Eden Valley Riesling, South Australia, 2022  

Grape: 100% Riesling, hand harvested, practising biodynamic principles, ungrafted vines planted on sandy loam over gravel soils at 500m altitude

Producer Tasting Note:

Pale straw with green hues. Fragrant aromas of citrus blossom, white rose petals, lime zest and Kaffir lime leaf, with hints of lemongrass and green peppercorn. A pure and mineral palate with concentrated ripe lime and slate-like acidity with laser focus, balanced by a fine, long, textural finish. 2022 was an exceptional vintage with great potential for long ageing of 25+ years.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the Julius Riesling, and what a vintage to be able to commemorate. 2022 was blisteringly good, seemingly everywhere in South Australia (and Western Australia too), and that was never more true than for Riesling. Here, in the 2022 Julius Riesling, the tension and savory precision that marks Julius is out in full force; the wine this year is littered with preserved lemon, brine, pith and crushed shells (odd, sure, given the non-proximity to ocean!) and, more interesting, leafy things too, like green tea and orchard leaves. Kaffir lime, also? Excellent." Drink 2022-2037

95/100 points, Erin Larkin, WINE ADVOCATE, December 2022

"Really fresh and subtle and super-delicate with lovely satin texture. More restrained than the Peggy's Hill 2022 Riesling with an impressively long finish. Already there's a dense undertow though. Very fine." Drink 2023-2032

17/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, March 2023

Asian style salads with lime & coriander are a good match with an Australian dry Riesling, as are Thai fish cakes, smoked fish and tuna with sesame.
