Four Winds Vineyard Riesling Gin

We think our wines are great but it is lovely to hear it from third parties. Below are some of the recent reviews that we have received;

Our Riesling Gin was awarded a bronze medal at the Australian Gin Awards on Monday.

2021 Off-dry Riesling 92/100 – The Real Review “A perfumed nose of florals and tropical fruits like paw paw. The residual is quite high but it is balanced by a fine and driving line of acidity. This is pristine and judiciously balanced.”

2021 Riesling 95 points, The Real Review “The aroma is very reserved and shy, with a hint of greenness, a fresh-herb note, and a little smoky note, possibly due to a trace of reduction. The palate is lean, very lemony and bright in its acidity, leaving a tanginess on the aftertaste. Very intense apple and citrus flavours, the fruit-sweetness balancing and striking sparks off the cool-grown acidity. Time will only improve this wine—it’s already a great drink but it’s still a baby.”

2021 Riesling 94 Points, The Wine Front – “Pretty talc-like and blossom perfume with lemon/lime and crunch of Granny Smith apple. There’s maybe just a kiss of sweetness, but the energy, the focus, and juicy apple flavour is compelling. A fine chalky texture, and nervy tang on a long tight finish is the icing on the cake. Excellent.”

Sparkling Riesling 92/100 The Real Review – “Light, bright lemon colour with a mousse of bubbles. The nose is very fresh, youthful and flowery, like riesling; the palate is delicately-weighted but intense and bright, lively and energetic right through to the aftertaste. There’s a trace of sweetness but the acidity drives the finish long and satisfying. Classic floral and lemon-citrus riesling flavours.”
