Pikes Traditionale Clare Valley Riesling 2020
Elegance is the cornerstone of this lovely riesling, with a flawless serenade of citrus allsorts, its spine of acidity a contradiction in terms, because it's almost sweet - an illusion, of course. An each-way proposition for now or later consumption. Drink to: 2035; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Nov 2020; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2020; James Halliday Wine Companion

O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2019
Machine-harvested at night, destemmed and crushed, gently pressed for free-run. There's a sorbet-like energy and bounce to the wine, the crunchy electricity of the fruit on the palate exhilarating, driving the long finish. Drink to: 2034; Price: $28.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2020; Alcohol: 11.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Henschke Peggys Hill Eden Valley Riesling 2020
Delicious riesling in full-on Eden Valley style, lemon blossom aromas swiftly replayed on the juicy yet tightly framed palate. Makes life difficult for the taster such as I, with dozens of wines remaining to be tasted, prohibiting the impulse to swallow just a little bit. Drink to: 2030; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Nov 2020; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2020; James Halliday Wine Companion

Sons Of Eden Freya Eden Valley Riesling 2020
A very finely detailed nose with lemon, lime, light pepper, crushed stones, apple blossom, flint and chalk. The palate has a superb delivery of super long, elegant yet powerful lemon, apple and grapefruit flavors. Fresh and focused finish. Concentrated. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Rating: 96 Points; No. 9 Top 100 Value Wines of 2020; Nick Stock for James Suckling
