2022 Quiet Mutiny Riesling: "This was one of Kline’s top three wines of the tasting. “Lifted aromas of melon, finger lime, subtle elderflower, and honeysuckle,” he wrote. “The palate is fresh and fine with lovely viscosity and added interest coming from some residual sugar. There’s a lovely balance of tension and flavour on the palate. Melon, white florals and ripe lime are wrapped up in assertive, pithy acidity, which compacts the palate and pulls it long. Impeccable balance, and length for days.”

Introduction of the article: "Tasmania is ideal territory for cool climate viticulture. A combination of relatively modest temperatures and abundant sunshine allow for ripe fruit flavours with thrilling natural acidity. It’s no surprise that sparkling wine was pursued there, but it’s also been seen as hallowed ground for aromatic whites, chief amongst them being riesling. And it was riesling that got the modern Tasmanian wine industry rolling with a modest crop in the early 1960s on a promontory in the Derwent River in suburban Hobart. Fast forward, and while riesling hasn’t exploded in volume like pinot noir and chardonnay, there are exciting expressions coming from across the island state. So much so that a Deep Dive was called for."
