Capel Vale 2010 Whispering Hill Riesling

Move over Clare Valley; step aside Eden Valley. Mount Barker in West Australia's south west is fast emerging as a serious producer of high quality rieslings. An oustanding single vineyard wine from the edge of the Prongorup Ranges, this has gloriously welcoming floral aromas and searingly intense lemon and lime flavours on a palate that is both beautifully fresh and perfectly balanced. This is a wine for sipping and savouring; an elegant supermodel. $33.

Glad you enjoyed it Winsor! We certainly feel the 2010 vintage has provided us with some stunning white wines from the Great Southern region. Nice description of the wine comparing it to a supermodel, it certainly fits the super long bottle!!
