It may sound like the proverbial broken record but this is yet another truly stunning Clare Valley Riesling from the 2021 vintage. The choice between this and the Watervale – well, it shouldn’t be a choice at all; just get both – it really will come down to personal preference. For me, the pristine purity in this wine gives it the edge, but others will opt for the more generous Watervale. There is no wrong answer. 

Again, green but there is more sunlight filtering through here. Wet stone, citrus, steel and bath talc. There is a fraction of a whiff of florals and confectionary, but very much in the background. A minerally undertow. There is excellent length here, piercing acidity, knife-edge balance and a future of at least twenty years.
