Limefinger The Learnings Watervale Riesling 2022


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.

Mitchell Watervale Riesling 2022


Pretty scents of white florals with Jasmine highlights. Zippy and zesty, this is a great drink for the money.

Vickery Watervale Riesling 2022


Pretty white flowers, a subtle bath powder and a musky perfume get you in the mood. There is a bit more going on aromatically with this Vickery Watervale Riesling - a little more than its Eden Valley stablemate.

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.

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.

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.

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...
