This riesling was made by Tim Smith at Rocland Winery from 75 year old dry-grown, hand-picked grapes which are situated a mere few hundred metres to the west of the famous Ringland "Three Rivers" vineyard in the premium area of the Barossa Ranges. With crisp acid, notes of lemon and lime. A fine austere Eden Valley Riesling. Screwcap.
94+/100 points Philip White - "The Independent Weekly", Adelaide
"Cool this, unscrew, pour your glass and ponder it while the bottle breathes for an hour or two in the fridge. Go again and you'll begin to realise the quiet force and huge cellaring potential of this mighty nesting from the Valkyrie uplands atop Flaxman's Gully. For this is Valkyrie wine; syrupy, dry, austere stone-and-muscle with Tim Smith's sensitive wine-making ensuring decades of safe maturation. Strong food: duck, beets and red cabbage."
90/100 points James Halliday - "Wine Companion", Melbourne
"A subdued bouquet, possibly due to subliminal reduction; much more power and length on the palate, with lime fruit and lemony acidity. Screwcap. Rating: 90 points. To: 2014."
