See below for the reviews and scores.
Plantagenet 2012 Riesling 94pts – Gold Medal
This was star of the Qantas Wine Show of Western Australia with three trophies, including wine of the show, and marks a return to form for Plantagenet Riesling. It has intense lime blossom aromatics, lemon-lime flavours with a hint of Granny Smith apples, seamless structure and dry chalky acid to finish. Long, deep and classy.
Plantagenet 2010 Shiraz 93pts – Gold Medal
In most years, you can expect this to be one of the state’s finest shiraz. This vintage is bright with peppery, savoury, briary characters on the nose and palate, and hints of blueberry, mint and spice. A firm tannin backbone is balanced by smooth fleshiness.
Fresh from release, the 2012 Plantagenet Riesling has won three Trophies at this years’ prestigious Qantas Wine Show Of Western Australia, including Best Wine Of Show.
Judged from a field of over 1100 wines, the 2012 Plantagenet Riesling was awarded a Trophy for Best 2012 Riesling, Best White Wine and as mentioned Best Wine of Show.
“This remarkable accolade should be seen as confirmation of the Great Southern Region’s ability to produce world class Riesling and is recognition of the wonderful work done by our Plantagenet Vineyard and Winemaking teams.” commented Plantagenet Wines General Manager, Jan Skrapac.
