2021 Rieslingfreak No. 11 Mosaik Eden Valley Riesling
John Hughes is all about showcasing his love for Riesling, and he's passionate about showing off the diversity of the variety. This wine, his No. 11 Mosaik Riesling, is absolutely a wine to behold.
John got a little bit creative and wild with this expression - taking fruit from the Eden Valley, then ageing the wine in seasoned French oak for about a year. The result is magnificent - expect the typical Eden Valley Riesling flavours, like delicate florals, a lip smacking line of acidity, zesty citrus and finishing refreshingly crisp and racy. But the time spent in oak has given it an extra layer of complexity and the addition of a beautiful, mouth-filling, silky texture.
Overdelivering in the value for money department, this is an outrageously delicious and complex wine. Riesling lovers, you can't miss this.Read more about 2021 Rieslingfreak No. 11 Mosaik Eden Valley Riesling
2021 Dr Edge Tasmania Riesling
The formidable powers of Riesling from all corners of Tasmania are put to good and fascinating use here. And, of course, it just wouldn't be a Dr. Edge wine without a little funk... And funk, it has...
It's an equal blend of Pete Dredge's North, South and East Rieslings, bottled unfiltered with some residual sugar.
A whopping nine months on lees and a little lazy time in some old barrels has put some weight on the skeletal Tassie Riesling frame. Yes, there are all the classic steel and citrus notes, but there's an extra layer of savouriness in this wine takes it to a transcendently weird level.
As always with the wines of the good Doctor, there aren't many bottles around. Grab one while you can.Read more about 2021 Dr Edge Tasmania Riesling
2022 Adelina Watervale Riesling
There are a pigeon-pair of Rieslings from the Clare Valley made by Col & Jen at Adelina.
The Watervale Riesling is usually a touch sweeter than the Polish Hill River but in recent vintages it has been fermented through to almost dryness. It is showing a little more bright and vivacious in its youth (it is normally more closed than the PHR) with pristine citrus and slate characters.
Balanced on a knife edge, this is a whip-smart Riesling release from the Adelina duo. Year after year, one of our favourite, great-value Riesling producers.Read more about 2022 Adelina Watervale Riesling
2022 Swinney Frankland River Riesling
Frankland River is one of the country's best regions for growing Riesling and few know how to grow it as well as Lee Haselgrove.
Each bunch for this wine was hand picked to ensure only the most pristine fruit made it to the winery. Overripe, over exposed bunches were left behind, a wine of exceptional purity and length of flavour has emerged.
Nothing fancy in the winemaking from Rob Mann, just whole bunch pressed to tank, fermented clean and dry and allowed rest only lees for a few months before bottling.
It's razor sharp, has a piercing length, and will live for many years in the cellar.Read more about 2022 Swinney Frankland River Riesling
2021 Lyons Will Riesling
The Lyons Will Riesling is a opulent example of the variety built around luscious mouthfeel as opposed to the sheer racy acidity that characterises so many younger Australian Rieslings.
The long, cool growing season in the Macedon Ranges allows the intensity of flavour to develop in the fruit before over-ripe sugars become an issue for Ollie and Renata. The benefit of these marginal climates clearly show in this unique interpretation of the variety.
This is raised in old barrels adding another level of depth and textural intrigue to the finished. The fine, mineral-charged acidity still rings clear, but it's complimented by sheets of honeyed flavour and a fine powdery grip.
A delicious, decadent Riesling on offer here from one of the Macedon's most exciting operations.Read more about 2021 Lyons Will Riesling
2022 Ravensworth Regional Riesling
Those that have ever tasted the exquisite wines from the Clonakilla stable should know that most of them have been touched by the hands of Ravensworth owner/winemaker/butcher/purveyor of smoked meats, Bryan Martin.
The Ravensworth project is a chance for him to captain his own ship. The wines are some of the best value in the country.
This is a scintillating expression of Riesling. Nothing fancy (apart from a small component made in ceramic egg). Just amazing fruit made with a gentle and precise touch. This sits right alongside the best Rieslings in the Canberra region.
The demand for Bryan's wines escalates every year, and with great value wines like this coming from him so consistently, it's no wonder.Read more about 2022 Ravensworth Regional Riesling
