Peter Lehmann Portrait Eden Valley Riesling 2016
Indeed a lovely portrait of Eden Valley riesling. Pale bright quartz-green; the bouquet is floral with citrus blossom to the fore, the palate finely etched lime juice, the long finish with perfectly balanced acidity. Bargain, with even more to come over the next 5+ years. Drink by: 2029; Price: $18.00; Date Tasted: Sep 2016; Alcohol: 11%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion

Woods Crampton Black Label Eden Valley Riesling 2017
175 cases made. Black Label always puts me in mind of the top shelf stuff you’d eye off nervously as a kid…
Clean and pure, lemon and lime squeezed into mineral water, a lavender perfume, ultra-fine crushed rock texture, and a cool and very long slaty finish. Very fine Eden Riesling. No coarseness. High class. Say no more.  Tasted: Sept 17; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $29; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2037; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Tim Adams Clare Valley Riesling 2016
Still finding its feet, ferment characters lingering in the bouquet, but the classic bath salts, lime juice cordial, and grapefruit aromas push through. At 11% alcohol it's finely tuned, and at this stage the bracing acidity dominates the fruit which seems a little subdued. The fine structure and strict line through the palate speaks to its blue chip future. Drink by: 2036; Price: $22.00; Date Tasted: Aug 2016; Alcohol: 11%; Rating: 92 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
