Wine tasting notes

The wine leaps out of the glass with perfumed white citrus florals, spice and grapefruit. A real generosity and poise on the palate. Ripe juicy limes upfront, with a crisp acidity that carries the fruit all the way into a long saline, mineral finish. Elegant yet powerful, it builds layers in the mouth as the wine opens up. Consistent with the now well-established Isolation Ridge style this wine reflects both the low-yielding, dry growing conditions of this site. The balance of pristine fruit flavours and defining acidity result in an exceptional wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared with the confidence as it will continue to develop further complexity for many years to come. A wet spring provided good early vine growth, a dry summer with some minor rain events in January and early February kept the dry grown vines in optimal health.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 90 pts

Picked slightly riper than the other two Rieslings reviewed here, the medium-bodied (12.5% alcohol) 2016 Riesling Isolation Ridge offers peach-like aromas alongside hints of lime. It's not as austere as the Poison Hill, and somehow less interesting because of that, being a bit broader and less filigreed on the palate. It should drink well for up to a decade.


James Halliday (2020) - 94 pts

Totally captivating from the outset. Lime juice, kaffir leaf and the suggestion of something a tad sweeter – palm sugar, even. But this doesn't translate to the palate, which is deliciously zingy and flavourful, those exotic notes echoed.
