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.

Vickery Reserve Watervale Riesling 2019

 

Two blocks, Koerner G1 & G4 Block, were kept separate before blending to deliver this excellent Riesling. Two years of bottle age prior to release and already it is showing some early development with some toast peering through.

Kilikanoon Mort's Block Riesling 2021

 

There's a significant flood event happening in Brisbane at the moment. Residents are being told to conserve water due to issues at the treatment plant. Problem solved - drink more Riesling! Splash this in the glass and its energy and vibe consume you.

Vickery The Reserve Watervale Riesling 2018

 

As Kenny Rogers once said, "You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." So with this Riesling, do you hold or drink now? You'll be rewarded either way that's for sure. A ripping Riesling from the Clare Valley sub-region of Watervale.

O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2021

 

David O'Leary and Nick Walker say that the 2021 growing season in the Clare Valley is as good as it gets. Check this Watervale Riesling to have with some cooked seafood.

Paulett Wines Brielle Grenache 2020

 

A ripping Clare Valley Grenache that hails from the Watervale subregion. Delicious and then some, I'd dive into this with pike.

O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2020



I say the same every year, it's great to be able to compare the Watervale and Polish Hill River Rieslings from O'Leary Walker. Here's another fab Watervale release.

O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2019


Every year I look forward to these Riesling releases from O'Leary Walker. My favour seems to fluctuate depending on which way the breeze blows sometimes. Other years it's just because there is class in a glass.

Adelina Watervale Riesling 2018

When Teppanyaki comes calling and I need Riesling. I spied this on the list and it ticked the box and then some.

Jim Barry Watervale Riesling 2018


If you've never really dipped your toe into the ocean of beauty that is Riesling, here's a clever place to start. Often priced well below it's RRP, it's a ripping bargain and such a delicious wine.

Mitchell Wines Watervale Riesling 2017


Smashing Riesling. Perhaps I just leave the review at that. Terrific drinking hands down.

Bailey Wine Co Bryksy Vineyard Riesling 2017

The second edition of the Bailey Wine Co Riesling and this is an absolute beauty! My last taste (drink) of this (2016 vintage) was sitting by the dam at John Rymill's property just outside Penola in January 2017 as we watched the sunset and scoffed freshly caught lobster from Robe. This suited the purpose just fine then. Wish I had more lobster now...

O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2017

The two O'Leary Walker Rieslings present plenty to look forward to each year. It's almost a his and hers type of thing. Slate and minerality with the Polish Hill River, florals and prettiness with the Watervale. For 2017, I'm leaning towards the Watervale. What a bargain this is for Riesling fans!

Mitchell Wines Watervale Riesling 2016


My first look at a Mitchell Riesling for a very long time. It's good to be back - disappointed I haven't been back sooner. Classy Riesling here.


Jim Barry Watervale Riesling 2017


Always a good drink. Always great value. Find it for under or around $15 and you're laughing.
