Leconfield Old Vines Riesling 2002 (review)

88 points

Coonawarra, South Australia. 12%

Coonwarra can produce very good Riesling. Less upfront that Clare or Eden Valley Rieslings it generally needs a few years in bottle before it starts to shine. But this wine was quite a hit early winning a trophy at the 2002 Adelaide Show.

Today it is still a green gold colour. It’s a flavoursome Riesling with some green vegetal tones – but pleasant ones. Quite vinous, able to handle food.

The low alcohol is a pleasant feature. Stelvin/screwcap.
