Hutton Vale Farm Eden Valley Riesling 2022

 

Wines like this fly the flag and give another reason to demand that you need to drink more Riesling. Another to add to that ever-growing 'must try' list.

Robert Stein Half Dry Riesling 2022

 

Half dry but 100% supreme awesomeness. I could have more than my fair share of this wonderful wine. Time and again it smashes it and the 2022 release is no different.

Robert Stein Dry Riesling 2022

 

John Mellencamp has the Cherry Bomb but Robert Stein has the citrus bomb. This Riesling is a belter.

Gundog Estate Indomitus Albus 2022

 

Something a little different - Hunter Semillon meets Canberra Riesling. Bang! The first whiff slices through you. A smart wine this.

Gundog Estate Gundaroo Riesling 2022

 

The second release of this off-dry Riesling courtesy of the Gundaroo vineyard in Canberra. This is a beauty!

Paisley Wines Cashmere Riesling 2022

 


The Cashmere Riesling 2022 has had a little makeover with the labelling falling in line with others in the range. I must say, it's a good looking label too. From a little producer in Angaston, support small businesses like these and you'll be rewarded with quality wines. As for this, that chalky feel has me hooked. This Riesling is ace.

Pewsey Vale Lighter Riesling 2022

 

A new addition to the Pewsey Vale range, this Lighter Riesling was picked early to tap into the lighter alcohol market. It's a clever wine too.

Castle Rock Estate A and W Riesling 2022

 

Named after the founders of Castle Rock Estate, A&W represents the best of the best. Drinking superbly, this Riesling will also age gracefully. For now, I'll just be savouring every drop of this exceptional release.

Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Riesling 2020

 

Layered and generous, this is a serious Riesling for serious Riesling lovers. Harvested a little later and fermented dry, it's such an expressive and considered wine. Dive in with pike!

Pewsey Vale The Contours Riesling Museum Reserve 2016

 


Bam! Riesling with a little age and the taste buds explode. Let it sit for a while and don't serve it too cold before watching it emerge gracefully. An excellent wine from Pewsey Vale celebrating 175 years.

Black Estate Damsteep Pet Nat 2022

 

The best Pet Nat I have tasted. There, I said it! I could actually have a glass of this, and another, and probably another. Refreshing deluxe, this is a great fizz.

Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling Museum Release 2012

 

This is a walk down Riesling Boulevard where everything just sparkles. From the Pewsey Vale vineyard, this is a glorious wine.

Pegasus Bay Riesling 2019

 


There is a richness about this Riesling from New Zealand's Waipara region. It's not the fresh citrus type you may expect, nor is it trying to be. A considered and inviting release that keeps you coming back for more.

Pewsey Vale 1961 Block Riesling 2021

 


What a ripper we have here. Not yet in peak form, you won't be disappointed having a glass or three (as I did) but patience will yield even greater results.

O’Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2022

 

Boom! Steely, focused and damn fantastic. A brilliant Riesling, this is the best Polish Hill River release from O'Leary Walker that I have seen to date. Bravo.

Lyons Will Riesling 2022

 

I love this. What a drink! It's minerally, it's focused and it zeros in on the pleasure zone with pinpoint accuracy. Well played Lyons Will.

O’Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2022

 

Deliciously fragrant, this is a super expression of Watervale Riesling. From a year that mirrored the outstanding 2002, get in the queue for this ripping 2022.

Georges Road Block Three Riesling 2021

 


A minerally driven off-dry Riesling with eight grams of residual sugar, find a spicy Asian inspired dish to take you to your happy place.
