Rippon Riesling Mature Vine 2021

$65.00 inc. GST

Pure, textural, luscious, inviting, a riesling of accuracy and drinkability.


A warm & productive summer put plenty of flesh on this wine. The fruit is issued from Rippon’s mature vines, whose root hairs have invaded the schist rock below. Lurking towards the end of the first mouthful is substantial phenolic power and it soon starts to take charge of the wine… and give it its sense of place

The Wine Front 95 Points
The Wine Front – Good to see this now closed with a DIAM cork, though screwcap might be even better? Complex, savoury, powerful style of Riesling. There’s a slick glosssiness, with intense acidity, a saline ‘mineral’ feel, floral bits, apple and citrus, though I’d suggest it’s more about the feel of it, rather than simple flavour descriptors. Powdery feel and zip to the finish. Mighty. – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

James Suckling 95 Points
James Suckling – Bracing minerals, sliced pears and apples, wet stones and a gently floral edge here. So pure and fresh. The palate has a succulent, powerfully aligned drive of fresh apple and pear flavors with a mouthwateringly fresh stream of acidity. More citrusy at the finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. – Nick Stock
