2019 Adelina Watervale Riesling, Clare Valley

A combination of 1977- and 2001-planted riesling from the famed Gullyview vineyard in the Watervale subregion make up this wine. The vines are east-west facing with a southerly aspect and planted at an elevation of 400 metres.

2019 ATR Wines Chockstone Riesling, Grampians

The floral and citrus flavours that epitomise ATR Wines’ Great Western vineyard were matched by great minerality in 2019. The three different clones used for this wine each display unique vibrant characters, greatly enhancing the wine’s structure and complexity.

2018 Castelli Estate Riesling, Great Southern

Sourced from four individual subregions of Great Southern, this wine exhibits lifted floral and rose petal aromas with citrus undertones. Flavours of stone fruit and crushed wildflowers are framed by talc-like acidity and textural mid-palate weight.

2019 Corduroy Watervale Riesling, Clare Valley

The Blenheim vineyard delivered outstanding fruit in 2019 for this single vineyard riesling. A pure example of Watervale, it shows fragrant white blossom, spice and citrus, accompanying a fresh, textural and fruit-driven palate.

2019 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Riesling, Martinborough

A beautiful expression of Martinborough riesling, this wine shows lavender, rose petal and fresh lime aromas. The palate is complex and textural with classic floral and citrus notes, and an arrowhead of acidity balanced perfectly by a small amount of residual sugar.

2018 Kirrihill E.B.’s The Settler Watervale Riesling, Clare Valley

From an exceptional vintage in the Clare Valley, this wine offers enticing floral and intense citrus aromatics. The palate is elegant and balanced, with zesty citrus flavours, crisp minerality and crunchy natural acidity.

2019 Mada Wines Riesling, Canberra District

This vibrant wine is a blend of whole berry ferment in ceramic egg, wild fermentation on skins and classic stainless-steel tank fermentation, resulting in a wildly textural, unique and mouth-watering take on Canberra riesling.

2014 Mesh Riesling, Eden Valley

Aromas of lemon and grapefruit, with hints of dried green herb and spice, lead to a lively, generous palate, intense with citrus fruit flavours and hints of talc. The wine finishes clean and dry with refreshing acidity.

2019 Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling, Eden Valley

Intense aromas of dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime. The palate shows great length, with flavours of grapefruit, lime, fresh rosemary and a hint of tropical fruit, finishing with a soft natural acidity.

2018 Pooley Riesling, Tasmania

Lifted floral aromas, including apple blossom and jasmine, lead to a palate of volume and tension. Flavours of mandarin peel, grapefruit and subtle aniseed are guided by pulsating, driven acidity.

2019 Shut the Gate Polish Hill River Riesling, Clare Valley

This classic Polish Hill River riesling shows intense aromas of lemon, lime and apple blossom. The palate is poised and balanced with fine, zesty lemon, bath powder and mineral salts bound by a central nerve of natural acid.

2018 Tim Adams Skilly Ridge Riesling, Clare Valley

The Skilly Ridge vineyard was planted in 1994. It produces delicate, pure riesling with intense lemon, grapefruit and blossom aromas, with focused acidity and distinctive minerality.

2018 Vickery Riesling, Eden Valley

Fragrant and floral aromas of lemon blossom, pear and orchard fruits with hints of lime and herbs. The palate is powerful yet balanced with zesty lemon/lime citrus flavours, sherbet, mineral characters and a long, crisp finish.
