O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2015
The strange new label doesn't do it for me, but the wine does, proclaiming its Watervale origin, citrus fruit and minerally acidity indissolubly joined at the hip. Good now, but with much more to come. Drink by; 2030; Price: $19; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 92 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Knappstein Clare Valley Riesling 2016
Wonderful generousity of flavour with lime and grapefruit being complemented by a hint of dried fennel. Fresh aromas of bath salts mix with classic aromas of lemon and lime. Juicy acidity carries across the palate to a crisp & refreshing finish.
Jim Barry Watervale Riesling 2016
One of the first out of the blocks for 2016. Jim Barry's Rieslings have exceptionally low pH, starting as low as 2.86, and acidity as high as 7.3g/L. This is a vibrantly alive wine, with vivid lime and mineral flavours on the long palate. Please yourself whether you drink it: now or 10 years hence. Alcohol: 12.0% alc; Price: $19.00; Drink to: 2029; Rating: 94 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Vickery Eden Valley Riesling 2016
From 15-17yo low yielding vines from the Zander, Mason and Riley Vineyards, each parcel fermented separately in stainless steel before final selection and blending. Gleaming straw-green; classic young Eden Valley riesling, its citrus aromas and flavours on the midpoint between lime and lemon, the acidity flowing calmly on in the wake of the fruit, purity the watchword. Drink by: 2031; Price: $23.00; Date Tasted: Aug 2016; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Vaule Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
