Mike Bennie - "Such a scintillating, fantastic white wine. Its all green lime, grapefruit juice and distinct steely-mineral character. It moves at a crackling, cracking pace across the palate. Feels tight, glass-shard fresh, and best drunk now through to the next two decades. It feels like an icon". (vintage 2019)
Wine Selectors "A beautifully fruit-forward Riesling made with fruit from Coonawarra and Wrattonbully and crafted to form a juicy, yet age-worthy style. Pale lemon green. Fresh, clean aromas of dried herb, green apple, citrus and oyster shell. Tangy grapefruit entry opening to apple and pear, with creamy mouthfeel and texture, talc-like minerality and a touch of sweetness balanced by zippy acidity." (vintage 2019)
James Halliday - "From the estate's two vineyards in Coonawarra and Wrattonbully that combine synergistically to dance around maypoles of grainy acidity and slinky lime juice, ......... judged to perfection". (vintage 2019)
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 balanced and crisp and clean acidity." (vintage 2019)
The Real Review "Patrick of Coonawarra is on the list of one of the Top Wineries of Australia 2019." (vintage 2019)
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 wines are built on the solid foundation of extensive estate vineyards: 36 hectares in Coonawarra and 42 hectares in Wrattonbully. The Wrattonbully plantings contain shiraz, sauvignon blanc, and some of the riesling. All of the cabernet is grown in Coonawarra. The Estate is now managed by his eonologist 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.
