"Excellent maritime riesling. Rapier-like freshness delivered across a juicy mid-palate saturated with lemon peel, finger lime, sea salt and raw quince accents. A long trail of succulent freshness, with nothing hard, brittle or too dry, a dollop of sweetness delivered to fine effect: immaculate poise and giddy, mid-weighted drinkability. Drink or hold."
- 94 points, Ned Goodwin,

Tasmania is an extraordinary place for Riesling with its potential to produce some of the nation’s finest. Freycinet Rieslings have a fine pedigree stretching back 25 years to 1998 when the first 100% varietal riesling was produced, gaining high praise and considerable recognition along the way.

We are particularly passionate and excited about riesling at Freycinet. Our philosophy is to showcase the purity of riesling aroma and flavour in the wine. This begins with growing moderate yields of fully ripe healthy fruit in the vineyard. Vines are all hand pruned and hand harvested. In the winery a very careful, protective approach is utilised to ensure the delicate yet intense aromas and flavours are retained. Key to this is a slow fermentation at cool temperatures. 

The 2023 vintage brought lower than average yields and cooler conditions throughout the growing season. Fruit quality was excellent with small bunches and berries providing superb concentration of flavours and good acid balance. 

Half the pleasure of riesling for us is the delicate floral perfume reminiscent of gardenias and orange blossom and which the 2023 Freycinet Riesling reveals in spades.

The vibrant yet elegant palate offers a heady mix of citrus, green apple, white nectarine and gentle spice, complemented by a crisp and refreshing minerality. The excellent natural acid retention of a cool vintage, balanced with 2.94 g/L of residual sugar delivers scintillating tension.

This wine has all the hallmarks of a classic Riesling vintage, built for the long haul in the cellar. The elegance and refreshment qualities of the wine make it a perfect accompaniment to all lighter flavoured fine foods particularly seafood, or it can be simply enjoyed on its own.

Carefully cellared this wine will provide drinking pleasure over a 25 year period, developing attractively complex aged characters reminiscent of honey and toast.
