Reviews

review Rippon Rippon Mature Vine Riesling 2021Cameron Douglas MS: 95/100 & Top Wines Tasted 2023.  Wonderful purity and freshness with complexity and power, ripeness and sophistication. Aromas and flavours of preserved lemon and citrus tart, some apricot stone and core of mineral stone. Perfectly balanced as the wine touches the palate - flavours of sweet lemon and fruit spice, yellow apple and wild white flowers. The extended lees contact layers in mouthfeel and complexity without compromising the power, energy and completeness. Fine with mature vine completeness and back bone of acidity, a wine worthy of your attention. Best drinking from day of purchase through 2030+.

 

Review Rippon Rippon Mature Vine Riesling 2021James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com): 94/100. A creamy and beautiful riesling with sliced spiced pears and green apple aromas and flavors. Medium body. Off dry. Slate and mineral undertones. Green melon, too. More like a dry wine. Drink now.

 

Tasting note

Very fragrant with mouthwatering aromas of fresh and ripe lemons, green apples and impressive, stony, flinty notes. The weight and freshness is staggering. Refined, long and piercing, the lemon, green apple and grapefruit flavors carry so fresh. Lurking towards the end of the first mouthful is substantial phenolic power and it soon starts to take charge of the wine... and give it its sense of place.

Winemaking: Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery’s sorting table intact. It is gently crushed by foot and left to macerate on skins overnight. The fruit was then whole bunch pressed and run, by gravity, into a settling tank. 12 hours of settling is passed after which the juice is racked, retaining fine lees, into a horizontal fermentation tank (stainless-steel foudre). The winery’s resident yeast population (non-inoculated) took 25 days to complete fermentation with temperatures ranging from 8-32.5 degrees C. Autolytic portion underwent full malolactic fermentation. Total time on primary lees: 4 months.
