Koonowla Clare Valley Riesling 2023
Another very fine Riesling from the 2023 vintage out of the Clare Valley. This is a pale lemon hue, with aromas of limes, spices, citrus and florals. There is also an appealing character reminiscent of an Iced VoVo biscuit (we used to enjoy them as kids – no idea if they are still around today). The wine is nicely balanced and well-focused with good energy. The palate really lifts a notch with oodles of lemon and crème brulee notes showing good length. Enjoyable now and over the next six to ten years. Tasted: December 2023; Drink: 2023 - 2033; Price: $28.00; Rating: 93 Points; Ken Gargett

Jeanneret Clare Valley Big Fine Girl Riesling 2023
Finely poised and firmly structured, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, lemon sorbet and jasmine nuances on the nose, leading to a captivating palate that's concentrated with restraint and finesse. Wonderfully structured and harmonious with a prolonged sleek finish. At its best: now to 2039; Price: $30.00; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2023
Bruised apple, baked citrus, and warm lime on a nose that is shy at first, but gradually warms up to you. A very generous and lasting palate is shot through with highlights of minerality and the flavours of lime juice, crushed quartz and acid gushes like an underground spring from the back palate. There’s a savoury, almost meaty and herbal edge at the finish, (sage, mint, maybe a suggestion of fresh rosemary) communicating to me what I should be eating with it. Roast lemon chicken it shall be then. Save a little splash for the gravy if you can hold back. Date: Sept 2022; Rating: 94 Points; Morgan Dunn; Wine Pilot

Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling 2023
Preserved lemon, white pepper and spice, white flowers, fennel, and fresh apricot. It’s juicy, quite yellow in flavour, with a fine dusty/chalky texture, bright acidity, pink grapefruit with some pith, almond, and a firm chalky finish of excellent length, with a cinch of citrus peel bitterness. Texture is lovely, and indeed, this Riesling continues to be one of the most distinctive offerings available from this country. As an aside, it’s quite Italianate in its delivery, which of course I really like. Date: Jun 2023; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $28; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2030; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
