Clare Valley riesling from the Watervale sub-region. Koerner G6 Block. Reserve. Such an interesting riesling. So much body and such good intensity. It’s textural too. It tastes of lime leaf, lemon, gravel, wet slate and orange blossom. I thought it was going to be sweet but then it wasn’t; it’s just the body of it, the way it balloons in the mouth. It’s well worth tracking down. It will age but personally I would drink it young. I’m tossing up 93/94 but opted higher on the grounds of personality and intensity, if not for out-and-out length.

Spices and lemony notes here. Some limes. A hint of a chalky background and a slight oystershell note. Still so youthful but offers terrific intensity. It does feel that this is trying to exhibit some of those traditional developed honey notes but has not quite got there yet. Slightly rounded, has fine balance and a promising future. The acidity is pinpoint. Cracking stuff.

Subtle floral bouquet, low-key but attractive, and slightly lime-leafy. The wine is rich and full, soft and broad, with a very dry balance, yet soft. Intense but light-bodied, with good persistence.
