Riesling fans – back up the truck as this is a gorgeous expression of Watervale and the 2021 vintage which represents superb value. Pale straw in colour with green tinges, it has the classic delicacy and fruit brightness of a serious wine from Watervale. There are piercing aromas of wet stones, citrus peel and white flowers with the freshness and bite of a mountain stream. It is followed by a dry and taut palate, a picture of balance between pristine fruit and a core of fine yet firm acidity while retaining a delightfully silky texture. It’s a super wine, crowned with a long and vibrant finish. Buy a case or two and enjoy over the next decade.
