"John Vickery is the acknowledged old master of Riesling in Australia, with an illustrious career spanning nearly sixty years, culminating in the extraordinary awards tally of more than fifty Trophies and over four hundred Gold Medals."
Over half a century's worth of experience has given John Vickery an understanding of Riesling grapes that is un-matched. It is this knowledge, combined with his reputation for extraordinary attention to detail, that has produced Australia's finest Rieslings.
The Vickery label is more then just a legacy for his stellar career and countless awards; it is the preservation of his winemaking methods and extraordinary knowledge of this most noble grape variety, that will be passed on for generations to come for the benefit of all lovers of classic Australian Riesling.
Growers Kym and Rose Castine with Phil Lehmann and John Vickery
"Light, bright straw hue, and a lifted fragrance of lime and dried herbs. The wine is slightly drier then the St John’s Road, but also slightly softer in acidity, at the same time as the alcohol is lower an the wine has great delicacy in the mouth. Subtly chalky texture and mouth-watering properties. Great finesse, perfume and length. A most impressive young riesling."
