O'Leary Walker Polish Hill Riesling 2016

Of the two new release O'Leary Walker Rieslings, this Polish Hill steals the gong from the Watervale, although the Watervale 2016 is a delicious wine it its own right.

Previously the two have shared the same price point, but the organic practices used in the vineyard for this Polish Hill, the last 8 years no less, have no doubt pushed the price up by five bucks. Regardless, this is super drinking.

The restraint and tight cut have my attention here whilst others would prefer the fruit driven Watervale - horses for courses.

Riverstone and slate minerality, the structure is very focused and clean. Lemons, limes and green apples take the stage. Chalky to finish and just damn tasty.

Drink now or will age gracefully well beyond a decade.

94/100 - Very good+
