Sevenhill’s Riesling vineyards are planted on gently undulating slopes up to 500 metres above sea level. The 2016 Inigo Riesling shows divine varietal character underlined by a citrus punch that engages on the back of powerful floral aroma. Pithy lime flavours flow through to a slightly textured finish.
Has picked up some colour, but is bright with no cause for concern; there is a lot of high quality wine here at the price, the floral citrus bouquet starting the show. It's bone dry, but there is a wealth of lime juice, pith and zest backed by crunchy acidity. Outstanding value. Screwcap.

A bright green/gold colour, a lush sweet lime and spiced peach nose and lime cordial-like flavours in the mouth, the palate light, soft and smoothly rounded with a popular fruit lift to the finish. Price: $22.00; Graeme Phillips; Mercury
I drank gallons of the 1997 Sevenhill Riesling, literally. I’ve tried the wines on and off over a couple of decades now, so was happy to see these wines come though the door. It’s a delicate style, and quite shy in its youth, with clean lemony flavour, fine acidity, flinty feel and a crunchy lemon-water finish. Not a powerhouse style at all. Certainly water-colours here, but all the elements are in harmony I think. So, if you like them light and fresh, it’s a good option.
