Evandale Estate Riesling Traminer 2012

$28.00 inc. GST

For those in the know, vintage 2012 was a knock-out vintage statewide and we were bowled over that the Evandale Estate R-T 2012 is in no hurry to grow up and is still as fresh as the day it was bottled.

Evandale Estate Riesling Traminer 2012

Critique review

This wine is true to label, after the ancient Alsace blend. The wine does not have the staunch acid structure of other modern Eden Valley Rieslings, but is a more immediately approachable drink with a certain rustic venerability about it. Rather than being austere and lemony, it’s peachy, a little like an uncommonly good Chardonnay without oak. But the Riesling’s limey nature gives it difference, offering a smooth, comforting palate with just the right tweak of acidity. Unusually, it’ the perfect accompaniment to simple egg dishes, like, say, the radish or oyster omelettes you’ll find in Park Lok or Wah Hing in Chinatown (bung on the chilli oil). Otherwise, I’m dying to try it with softer veal dishes, like an Amalfi-style saltimbocca.” – Philip White, Independent Daily, 30 April 2013

Winemaker comments

An enticing cool climate blend of two thirds Riesling displaying lime and lemon characters with aromatic floral aromas from one third Traminer. The palate is a dry style, subtle in flavour with white peach and a delicate natural acidity and will age gracefully for the next five years. – Jo Irvine
