O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2020
The 20th vintage and what a cracker it was in Clare. This is distinctly finer and more delicate than the Watervale wine from this vintage. It really reflects this outstanding area. Has a pronounced bath salts minerality with a little lime character. Very long and precise and ideal for current drinking or for the cellar. Rating: 96 Points; Ray Jordan; The West Australian

Jeanneret Clare Valley Big Fine Girl Riesling 2020
Exquisitely fine and poised, the wine shows lemon sorbet, lime peel and white floral aromas on the nose, leading to a delicately expressed palate that's concentrated and focused. Superbly structured by racy acidity, finishing impressively long and mouth-watering. Tasted: March 2021; At its best: 2021 to 2024; Price: $27.50; Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Irvine Spring Hill Eden Valley Riesling 2020
My Australian White of the Year under $25 is Irvine Spring Hill Eden Valley Riesling 2020. This was a vintage of low-yielding, drought-induced concentration, infused with tremendous promise thanks to the acid retention of cold nights. In seasons like this, fine-tuned phenolic control is tricky at this level of concentration in riesling, calling for a steady hand in the vines and the winery. Drink 2021-2030; Price: $24.00; Alcohol: 12.2%; Rating: 94 Points; Tyson Stelzer

Sorby Adams Eden Valley Jellicoe Riesling 2020
Offering fabulous fruit purity and elegance, the wine shows nectarine, lime sorbet, green tea and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate displays excellent concentration and structured, wonderfully complemented by fine texture and juicy acidity. It's youthfully attractive and delicate with a terrific linear finish. At its best: 2023 to 2035. Date: Aug 2020; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
