Mitchell Clare Valley Watervale Riesling 2015
Plenty of flesh and drive and, frankly, appeal. This looks the goods right now, though history as much as anything suggests it has plenty up its sleeve. Citrus and talc on a straight line of acidity. No-brainer. Drink by: 2025; Price: $24.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2016; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; 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
 
Woods Crampton Black Label Eden Valley Riesling 2016
Uses the first 500 litres of juice per tonne of grapes, which means you get the pure, clean juice. 125 cases made. Discreetly perfumed, with a subtle aniseed top note over lemon and lime. Light, almost dainty in the mouth, tightened up by cool pure acidity, and a stream of lemony flavour running over pebbles to close. That’s one ripper Riesling. Tasted: Sept 2016; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $27; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2016-2030+; Rating: 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
