Colour Pale-Straw
Nose Limey, floral, mineral, stone fruit aromas still showing with honeydew richness leading the aged characters.
Palate A beautifully balanced aged Riesling. This 2007 now with a soft palate, acidity and a mouth-filling flavour complexity. A treat to taste a wine like this that has been kept in perfect ageing conditions in the winery.
Food Pairing Pan-fried Scallops
Cellaring Ready, but will Keep

Plantagenet Wines
Plantagenet was established by Tony Smith, who continues to be involved in its management over 40 years later, notwithstanding that it has been owned by Lionel Samson and Son for many years. He established five vineyards: Bouverie in 1968,Wyjup in '71, Rocky Horror I in '88, Rocky Horror 2 in '97 and Rosetta in '99. These vineyards are the cornerstone of the substantial production of the consistently high quality wines that have always been the mark of Plantagenet: highly aromatic Riesling, tangy citrus-tinged Chardonnay, glorious Rhone-style Shiraz and ultra-stylish Cabernet Sauvignon.

Great Southern
Set among the backdrop of Australia’s most majestic landmarks, the Great Southern Wine Region boasts an incredible size fit for both winemaker and enthusiast. With its five sub-regions of Denmark, Frankland River, Mount Barker, Porongurup and Albany, winemakers are treated to an abundance of unique soil types and weather conditions, while enthusiasts can enjoy an array of wine styles with something for every palate.

The region's most recent trends showcase just how popular it’s becoming. Wineries in the region are being blessed by the cooler climate which is conducive to the production of the extremely popular Australian Shiraz. Pinot Noir enthusiasts can also expect great things to happen with the southern climate and terroir being superb for wine production. On top of that, the region is also upping the ante in terms of competition, being among the best in Australia for Riesling, a fierce competitor to South Australia’s renowned Clare Valley.

You could almost say that wines and the Great Southern were made for each other!
