Kate Hill Tasmania Riesling 2015


I’m a big fan of Kate Hill’s rieslings.

This 2015 is the current release and was just given 95 points in the latest Halliday Wine Companion.

The wines are produced at the small winery in the Huon Valley (a formerly disused apple packing shed), a total of about 1,000 cases across riesling, pinot noir and sparkling.

Only 12% alcohol and even once opened, you can drink it over several nights. What’s not to like about that?

Only exports to Tiger Wines so you won’t see this anywhere outside Australia except here in Singapore.

2015 Riesling


Chartley Estate Tasmania Riesling 2014


That’s quite an impressive trophy list.

“Best from Tasmania”, “Best in Australia” and to top it off, “Best Dry Riesling” against competitors from the Czech Republic, France, Germany, New Zealand, South Africa and the US.

At A$50 retail, I think this is Tasmania’s most expensive riesling but it still falls well short of the price of some of the top Clare Valley rieslings.

For the record, “dry” in this show is defined as less than 8 grams of residual sugar.
