Magpie Hill Reserve Riesling is the product of the vision of Duke’s Vineyard owner Ian (Duke) Ranson and his wife Hilde. Their first vines were planted in 1999 for Duke’s 60th birthday beginning what was their 20-year ‘retirement’ plan. In their last vintage for actual retirement, their faith in their Porongurup terroir with major national coverage of their near perfect wine. Expect purity, elegance and drive.

Duke’s Rieslings are quite remarkable. I don’t think there is a more powerful and intense Riesling made in (WA). Over the years, they have continued to excel reflecting both the winemaking and the exceptional site which brings something special to the wines. The region is now firmly established as one of Australia’s premier Riesling regions. A cool vintage which allowed slow development of complex characters, beautiful acidities within the grapes, balance and finesse, and ample plushness and generosity, resulting in wines that are finely balanced and have very good aging potential. Rating: 97 Points & Riesling of the Year; Ray Jordan. WA Wine Review 2023

Smoky struck-flint reduction at first sniff then a suite of fruit aromas gradually unfolds, floral, mineral, green apple and lemon to the fore. The wine is tightly wound and very restrained, delicate and tense, needing time to emerge fully. Lively acidity is neatly integrated into the wine. A long-term wine for sure, a style that needs time and will richly reward even a few years cellaring.
