2012 Polish Hill River (Aged)

2012 Aged Release Polish Hill River Riesling

Warm, with notes of toasted honey and citrus curd, the 2012 Aged Release Polish Hill River Riesling is rich, textural and altogether delightful. If we didn’t know better, we’d say magic happens when our classic Clare Valley Riesling is left to age in the bottle. The zesty acidity of the young Riesling mellows with time, bringing through a complexity that is altogether softer on the palate.

Pauletts Aged Release Polish Hill River Riesling is world renowned and much loved. Our 2005 vintage Aged was awarded the Best Riesling in the World, against a field of 500 at the 11th Canberra International Riesling. Our 2012 vintage won platinum at the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards.

Tasting Notes

  • Aroma – Marmalade and lemon-lime curd with underlying citrus fruits, lanolin and toasted honey notes.
  • Palate – Aging produces a fuller and richer palate, showing preserved lemon, toast and honey. Fruit sweetness and slight texture, wet slate with a dry, clean, refreshing finish.
