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.

Goaty Hill Tasmania Riesling 2011


Sometimes, there is just no logic in selling wine.

I have promoted this 2011 Goaty Hill Riesling from the Tamar region of Tasmania twice since my initial purchase in late 2012. This is the third time.

It’s pretty well rated at Halliday 94, scored a Silver medal at the 2013 Tassie Wine Show, and there’s still plenty of life left in it, but…I’ve shifted just 20 bottles to date.

So, it’s time for it to go and make way for new wines.

It retailed at A$25 so it’s offered now at S$25.

Outstanding quality for the price.
