One of Australia's most talented and awarded winemakers, Tim Smith is focused on making benchmark examples of the Barossa's time proven varietals.
This 2022 Tim Smith Eden Valley Riesling is another sensational Riesling from a vintage that is proving one of the best in recent years. Sourced from a single vineyard in Eden Valley, nearly 100 years of age, this is an intensely flavoured and beautifully structured Riesling, with loads of lime, grapefruit and lively acidity. Ideal for enjoying over the warmer months, this is sure to develop more depth and complexity for the more patient among us.
"95/100. It’s not hard to appreciate this Tim Smith Wines Eden Valley Riesling 2022. Single vineyard Eden Valley Riesling ‘picked on a full moon for those that follow those sort of things’, it couldn’t taste any purer, any more bracing and fresh and lively. A fresh mountain stream at the beginning of summer, but in wine form. Lime juice, celery, grapefruit, lemon, some sort of blossom too. Yes, it’s acid formed, but rightly so. It’s natural acidity too, with the telltale softer shape. What really pushes this to top gold territory is the intensity. It’s a full fruit punch in your mouth – no leanness, just latent, grapefruit/lime power and a long, long finish. Tingles with this lip-smacking lime vitality. What a wine. I will always admit to a soft spot for limey, intense, super dry Eden Riesling, but when it comes with enough generosity and flavour to be immediately delicious? And it’s $30 a bottle? I’m jumping up and down about it. Best drinking: I like this style within the first 9 odd months of release or come back after four years. 18.7/20, 12% alc., $30."- Andrew Graham, ozwinereview.com.
"94 Points. Love a brown glass bottle. Lime juice, mineral water, green apple, a little haziness to texture and bright, tangerine-like finish. Yum. There’s even some subtle, yeasty, nutty elements in the wine. Indeed, a complex rendition here and one with length, presence and general refreshment factor. Pitch perfect, very classic, very well done. Dig in. Tasted: SEP22 12% alc. $30 Screwcap Drink: 2022 - 2035+"- Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
