Bay Of Fires celebrate their 20th anniversary this year and in that time have quickly risen to the top of the pile for Tasmanian wineries. Having had such lauded head winemakers as Fran Austin and Pete Dredge overseeing the wines, Chief Winemaker is now homegrown Penny Jones, ably supported by two other locals in Stewart Byrne and Kathryn Bevan. Fruit for this wine comes from the Coal River and Derwent Valleys in Southern Tasmania
Bay of Fires, Riesling, Tasmania, 2020
The colour is the palest of straw yellow. Lime and green apple with an espy of musk, tobacco, fresh coconut flesh. Intense, tight and razor sharp. Minerally steely, mouth watering acid spine with the finest lick of grippy texture to ensure a solid frame to build upon for the future.
Rating: 18.5/20 (94/100)
