Aaron Brasher, The Real Review "Really pale and youthful in the glass. Aromas of citrus blossom, bath salts, lemon rind and white flowers. Fine and delicate, soft, round citrus flavours, lively acidity and textured. A pretty and very drinkable riesling"
The Winemaker “This Riesling is a blend of our two vineyards in Coonawarra and Wrattonbully. The Coonawarra component adds citrus acidity and lime flavour and the Wrattonbully adds a floral lift. The aroma is intense, showing lime blossom and citrus freshness. The palate is vibrant with good balance and crisp and clean acidity.”
QWine "Patrick Coonawarra always produces great Riesling. The only thing that has changed in this case is the new label. A sharp new look to a forever reliable wine. Super fresh and bursting with lemons and limes, some lime leaf and Jasmine flower aromas hook you in early. A suggestion of bath salts too, but I'm here for the refreshment factor and crisp finish - just delicious. It is such an easy drink to relax with. Seafood or sunshine, you choose." (2020 Vintage)
Patrick of Coonawarra was founded by Patrick Tocaciu; one of Australia's leading wine (and AFL football) figures. Patrick's reputation for producing exceptional wine earned him many international accolades for the major labels he worked as Chief Winemaker, including; Tollana, Penfolds, and Hollick Wines. Patrick's distinguished reputation continued with the establishment of his own Patrick of Coonawarra Estate label. The Estate is now managed by his son, Luke who continues the tradition of producing wines of varietal and regional excellence.
Coonawarra is the most important wine region within the Limestone Coast zone of South Australia, credited with producing some of the best red wines in the entire country, and often described as Australia's most famous terroir. It is located in the far south-east of the state, adjoining the border with Victoria south of Wrattonbully.

Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white wine grape variety.
