Already developing some aged characteristics, a bit earlier than expected to be honest, this is a Riesling that will live long. With the name Vickery on the label, longevity comes as no surprise.

From a certified organic vineyard in Polish Hill River that is owned by two Adelaide heart surgeons, the Doctor's Cut is only made in exceptional years. Racy with chiselled acidity, this is an electric Riesling from O'Leary Walker.

The debut release of this O'Leary Walker Pinotage was in 2019. A great drink back then, you'd be pleased to know little has changed. Silky with plenty of red and blue fruits, this is a joy to drink.

Neil Pike has been making Riesling from this vineyard for over 30 years. Planted in 1994, the vineyard surrounds his home. The joyous presence and focused tension of Polish Hill River is shining here in all its magnificent glory. The best new release Riesling I have tasted? Absolutely!
Neil Pike says that after 40+ years of making Watervale Riesling, you learn a thing or two, hence the name The Learnings. Limefinger is his retirement project, and if you love Riesling you ought to race to the front of the queue. This is exceptional.
