Wilson DJW Polish Hill River Riesling 2019
Hand-picked, chilled and whole-bunch pressed. Has citrus blossom and crushed tangerine aromas, backed by hints of spice that also materialise on the palate. The overall clarity of the wine and its acidity are exemplary. Drink to: 2039; Price: $24.00; Date Tasted: Mar 2020; Alcohol: 12.0%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; 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

Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling 2020
I gather Dom Torzi thinks this 2020 is one of his best releases to date. I guess he’d know. Firstly, wonderful texture and feel in the mouth with plenty of chalk and stony stuff. Flavours are green apple, lime and lemon verbena, fennel and ginger. It’s intense and crunchy, but has weight and powdery grip to go with all the sizzling acidity. It’s very long, and firm, to close. Most definitely a bit of the old mouth-watering going on here. Tasted: June 2020; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $28; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2021-2035; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Sons Of Eden Freya Eden Valley Riesling 2019
From two Eden Valley vineyards: 44yo vines at Craneford, the other at High Eden, both hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. Intense, pure lime/lemon fruit hits the bullseye, juicy yet crisp/crunchy acidity on a long palate. Drink to: 2032; Price: $28.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2020; Alcohol: 11.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
