Having sold his share in Neagles Rock Vineyards, Steve Wiblin struck out in his own with his own label, Erin Eyes. He describes the inspiration for the very personal name thus - “In 1842 my English convict forebear John Wiblin gazed into a pair of Erin eyes. That gaze changed our family make-up and history forever. In the Irish-influenced Clare Valley, what else would I call my wines but Erin Eyes?”

Wonderfully lifted fruit notes of citrus and peach with lovely floral musk and spring blossoms. The palate is what a good Reserve Rieslings should be, this wine is as tight as new elastic. Lemon, Granny Smith apples and orange zest flavours softened by peach and nectarine hints. The high natural acid lifts these flavours and helps the wine dance on your tongue.

With its pale colour and restrained young aroma, this is just a baby, but what potential! Nascent aromas of dried flowers, stone fruits and spices lead into a palate of superior concentration, great intensity, line and length. It will only improve with time in the bottle. Date Tasted: Sept 2017; Price: $35.00; Alcohol: 12%; Drink: 2018-2032; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke

A high quality wine by any standards, fully reflecting the vineyard and the vintage, the hand of the winemaker simply respecting the quality of the grapes. There is a core of juicy citrus, flanked on either side by minerally acidity that gives the wine its structure and length. Drink By: 2032; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: 11 Sep 2017; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion

Riesling from “the Penwortham micro-climate” of the Clare Valley. Intensity. This has it. That extra kick to the flavour. Lime, talc and lemon sorbet. Bang, it hits and it runs. A suggestion of mineral to the aftertaste. Mouth-watering. Textbook. Tasted: April 18; Alcohol: 12%; Price: $35; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2028+; Rated: 94 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
