Dukes Magpie Hill Riesling

The 2022 vintage from Duke’s Vineyard continues their tradition of exceptional Rieslings. Despite being from a cooler year, the ’22 vintage showcases the characteristic strength, energy, and elegance. It blends the depth of older vine blocks with the complexity of younger ones, resulting in a multi-layered wine. Pale straw in colour with hints of green, it offers aromas of lime zest, Meyer lemon, and lemon sherbet, complemented by subtle notes of cucumber and green melon.
On the palate, flavours of lemon, lime, and delicate white citrus blossom are balanced by a soft, powdery acidity that adds texture. The finish is long, mineral-driven, and elegantly structured.

Accolades

97 points and Best WA Riesling, WA Wine Review 2023
Duke’s Rieslings are quite remarkable. I don’t think there is a more powerful and intense Riesling made in (WA). Over the years, they have continued to excel reflecting both the winemaking and the exceptional site which brings something special to the wines. The quality of Riesling from the Great Southern in its various subregions is remarkable. The region is now firmly established as one of Australia’s premier Riesling regions. This marvelous Porongurup estate was started by Duke Ranson, who established an outstanding reputation for his Rieslings before he sold it in 2022 to experienced winemaker Ben Cane.

95+ points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This 2022 Magpie Hill Reserve Riesling is the first under new ownership, and it leads with a distinctly different nose than usual. It’s challenging to pin down, but here goes: in place of the pristine white flowers and talc that is expected, there is swirling ash/embers, straw/hay, bison grass and graphite/bitumen and a pronounced petrichor/ozone character leads the charge. Behind it are pencil shavings, Dispirin (aspirin), the crackle of summer grass and oxalis. It’s salty and mineral, gray and rocky, austere and sleek. Whether it’s the season or not, this is a change in style for the Magpie Hill Reserve. Very different indeed.

95 points, The Real Review
Smoky struck-flint reduction at first sniff then a suite of fruit aromas gradually unfolds, floral, mineral, green apple and lemon to the fore. The wine is tightly wound and very restrained, delicate and tense, needing time to emerge fully. Lively acidity is neatly integrated into the wine. A long-term wine for sure, a style that needs time and will richly reward even a few years cellaring.
