2013 Parish Vineyard Coal River Riesling

The former Frogmore Creek vineyard, renamed the Jansz Parish Vineyard following acquisition by the Hill-Smith family. Tasmania, the new frontier in retaining a presence in cool climate viticulture.

Lime, bath salts, suggestions of a chalky coolness. Hints of apple blossom and melon give further indication of the wine within.

The palate sees a wine that is, initially, vibrant and zesty, showing and energetic mineral presence. Loses its way a little from there - seemingly having out its effort into the introduction, leaving little in reserve. Reasonable finish, but not at this price point at present. 89
