2016 Poet's Leap
 

Poet's Leap 2016 - WA Wine Awards

"Gilles Nicault takes his second prize this year with Long Shadows' classic reference-point Washington Riesling. The layered fruit (lime, tangerine, peach) is complicated by persistent minerality and balanced by a striking vein of acidity."

RIESLING OF THE YEAR

 



 

Poet's Leap 2016 - Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Poet's Leap is very pretty, offering up aromas of lime, lemon oil, white flowers and very subtle petrol that wouldn't be out of place in the Mosel. On the palate, it's light to medium-bodied, racy and mouthwatering, with lovely intensity and purity, concluding with a stony finish. It's a beautiful wine and carries a very modest price tag."

Poet's Leap 2016 - James Suckling

"This is a standout. Lime citrus and some more savory wet-stone notes. Really exciting nose. The palate delivers a pithy lime and apple impression. A fresh drink-now style that's gently off-dry."
