Riesling - Pressing Matters Rieslings
Winery : Pressing Matters
Coal Valley, Tasmania -
Pressing Matters owner (and barrister) Greg Melick is committed to riesling and has long been a lover of the great wines of Mosel. This commitment has been rewarded with a generous haul of medals and trophies at the last 5 Tasmanian Wine Shows.
"...turned his attention to grape-growing and winemaking, planting riesling (2.9ha) at his vineyard on Middle Tea Tree Road in the Coal River Valley. It is a perfect north-facing slope, the Mosel-style Rieslings sweeping all before them." James Halliday Wine Companion 2011
- 2015 Pressing Matters R9 Riesling - Presents as a dry wine - tiny touch of residual sugar rounds out the flavours and highlights the quality of the fruit.
- 2015 Pressing Matters R0 Riesling - Bone dry as the R0 rating notes.
- 2015 Pressing Matters R139 Riesling 375ml - Full on dessert style of incredible purity and finesse.
- 2015 Pressing Matters R69 Riesling - This wine smells and drinks like a first-class German spatlaese at less than half the price. It is a harmonious and balanced wine without harsh acid or cloying sweetness, the overall impression one of sweet honeysuckle underpinned with minerals.
