Ordinarily, we would be fortunate enough to feature one or two 97 Point rated Rieslings each year, especially given that on almost all occasions, said wines are made in miniscule amounts, almost always a few hundred cases at best and almost always they aren't cheap. What we have here is the StarDozen: Halliday 97 Point Riesling Collection, featuring 3 bottles each from 4 renowned producers representing Australia's best Riesling spots. All wines rating 97 Points from James Halliday and all significantly below their retail price. This is a rare and extremely limited opportunity.

Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Riesling 2014
Light straw-green; an exceptionally scented, blossom-filled bouquet, including wild flowers as well as citrus and apple; a very intense and sculptured palate, with squeaky acidity running throughout. Likely to have a very low pH, and has a commensurately long palate. Screwcap. Drink to: 2034; Price: $35.00; Alcohol: 11.7%; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion

Henschke Julius Riesling 2015
A celebration of Eden Valley Riesling, starting with the fragrant, perfumed flowery bouquet, finishing with mouthwatering acidity. In between, lemon, lime and green apple make a flavour mosaic, its patterns never ending, but all in perfect synchrony. Great value. Drink: to 2030; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion

Willoughby Park IronRock Riesling 2015
Hand-picked from the best patch of the vineyard, chilled, whole bunch-pressed, wild-fermented, a portion in used French oak. There is more of everything: texture, structure, minerally acidity, lime zest and leaf as well as juice. Drink By: 2030; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2016; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Re-release.

A once in a lifetime McLaren Vale riesling offered at an absurdly low price. Drink By: 2023; Price: $29.00; Date Tasted: 02 Dec 2015; Alcohol: 11.5%; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday
