Campbell Mattinson has described Glaetzer-Dixon as '
One of the most exciting producers in the country
.' Their show-stopping wines have taken Tasmania by storm, winning massive accolades from the industry including a Jimmy Watson Trophy. Glaetzer-Dixon represents the next generation of Tasmanian winemaking and are taking a fresh look at what the region can produce.
The Glaetzer Dixon Uberblanc Riesling is attributed to the Uber 2001 vintage Nick Glaetzer experienced in the town of Forst in the Platz region of Germany. Working with Stephen Muller at Weingut Eugen Muller, Nick learned first hand some of the winemaking techniques used by the Germans in crafting elegantly structured rieslings with harmonious fruit and acid balance. This Tasmanian version displays the core elements of juicy mineral acid structure and fresh subtle citrus flavours- highly regarded by the Platz winemakers for quality rieslings.
Delicate lime zest and floral aromas fill the glass. Further citrus flavours develop on the fresh mineral structure, enhanced by the juicy acid finish.
