A competent Watervale Riesling. Jim Barry Watervale often available more cheaply.

"Watervale"

Vintage: 2015

I remember 30+ years ago buying a case of Yalumba (I think, perhaps Orlando) Watervale Riesling by phone from a case merchant in Brisbane. I liked it, have ever since felt an affinity with/for Watervale Riesling, for some more recent years Jim Barry. If Clare region vintners don't have a Polish Hill River or Eden Valley Riesling, odds are there's a Watervale on the cellar door list. This is a worthwhile Riesling in the not searingly dry style but certainly not off-dry either. It treads a middle road with some varietal fruit that progresses along the palate to a satisfyingly dry, rounded acid finish.

"Everything one expects from a Clare riesling"

Vintage: 2015

by
This is a lovely wine, with a clean lemon lime palate and a nice amount of dryness and acidity.



It is very pleasant to drink on it's own and goes especially well prawns and other seafood.



This is my second order for this wine, which I have really enjoyed.



I expect it will age well, if it were not so easy to drink now.
