VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

The Great Southern delivered excellent growing conditions, with winter and spring being reasonably dry and summer holding cooler temperatures.

The parcels of free run juice underwent a long and slow cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank immediately after pressing to preserve the fruit character. Gentle lees stirring was carried out to add subtle texture. The wine was bottled in June 2020.

THE WINE

The colour is light with a green tinge, the aromatics display apple blossom and lime tones. The palate shows a softly textured, crisp style with subtle mineral undertones and a tight crisp finish. It is anticipated in time this wine will develop a stone-line minerality and poached citrus richness whilst retaining its linear acidity.

I am in now way a professional when it comes to tasting and reviewing wines, but as someone who is a Riesling fan, this is hands down my favourite Riesling. I love great southern Rieslings and am drawn to the dry, balanced crispness that can be found among the variety of the region, but the Singlefile Great Southern Riesling stands out as a perfect stand alone white, or accompaniment to anything from a Friday night thai takeaway to a Sunday seafood spread. I always keep a bottle of this in my fridge....

Even though this Riesling is very young (2019 Riesling) it does have a delicate aroma with a subtle intensity. If drinking it while young, then have it with a sharp cheese and some salty olives. Otherwise, it will only improve immensely with time.

I’ve never been one for Riesling but this bottle has definitely changed my opinion. We enjoyed the bottle with a nice chicken Caesar salad. It was crisp and refreshing and not too sweet or dry. definitely a winner 🎉

An excellent Riesling with fantastic aroma’s of citrus flavours that encapture what is a quality wine. The colour is typically light with the palate sitting long with you into a crisp finish. Whilst we drank as an aperitif it will clearly match a variety of foods. A very impressive wine that will only getter better with age, if you can wait.

Any Singlefile Riesling is a winner if you ask me. The Rieslings produced here are what got me into Great Southern wines in the first place. This wine has a fruity and sweet aroma, however has a dry, acidic and fresh taste. We usually have it with fresh seafood and it pairs like a dream.

We really enjoyed drinking this wine! It was light and crisp with citrus notes and went perfectly with our meal on a warm evening.

Quite light and easy to drink; a good way to dip your toe into the dry Riesling pool. Citurs fruit, minerality and acid are all subtle but gently steered into an acceptable, almost old world wine. Drink accordingly.

A great example of a West Australian Riesling, fresh citrus flavours with nice acidity. This one will also cellar well!, great value for $25 and easily one of the best rieslings in the area.

I love a good Riesling especially on a warm afternoon near the pool. This Riesling is lemon yellow with green reflections. On the nose it exhibits Green apple melon and passion fruit with a lovely stony minerality. The palate is fresh with mouthwatering racy acidity and a crisp dry finish which makes this wine very moreish. Love this wine wish I had more.

Pale green colour, nose has hints of lychee and citrus, certainly lemon, tastes of lemon and lime, lightly acidic and traces of minerality. Gorgeously subtle young Riesling, will develop with age. I really like this wine!

Having spent a lot of time in the Great Southern I have tasted a lot of Riesling's, this one from Singlefile is right up there in my calculations. This wine is so versatile and can be quaffed around the house or taken to dinner parties to impress. Price is also on point.
