2020 Rieslingfreak No.4 Eden Valley Riesling

John Hughes has a deep love of Riesling.

His unwavering commitment to it has seen him become one of the country's finest artisanal producers of the variety.

This is his Eden Valley Riesling. The fruit is sourced from three vineyards between Eden Valley and Flaxman’s Valley.

It's made in a dry style, looking to capture the sublime characters of these brilliant vineyards. The quality is clear, the expression is pure.

This is Eden Valley Riesling in top form. A deadset bargain for any Riesling fan.

2020 Meadowbank Riesling

Winemaker Peter Dredge doesn't put a foot wrong when he's got fruit this good to play with, and this is simply a top-flight Tassie Riesling.

As is often the case with Riesling from this part of the country, retaining a little residual sweetness here was the key to balance. A wine of impeccable line and length, this is ripe for drinking immediately or tucking away for up to a decade in the cellar.

The 2020 is balanced to perfection. Long and precise and ready to drink now or in a decade.

2019 Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown Obstgarten Riesling T

While the Schmölzer & Brown duo await their own estate-grown Riesling to come online, they are plundering other cool-climate Victorian regions for premium fruit to play with.

Here they take fruit from the highest Riesling vineyard in Whitlands region, Victoria, and turn it into their version of a German Trocken style Riesling - hense the Obstgarten 'T'.

The acidity is absolutely blistering allowing the wine to find an easy balance with a touch of residual sugar though still maintaining a dry style overall.

This is a beautiful, elegant style of Riesling from one of Victoria's rising star producers. Drink now or cellar long.

2020 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.

2020 Adelina Watervale Riesling

There are a pigeon-pair of Rieslings from the Clare Valley made by Col & Jen at Adelina.

The Watervale Riesling is traditionally a touch sweeter than the Polish Hill River. Col & Jen usually opting to leave a trace of sweetness in the finished wine for more approachability.

The 2020 release is smoking. It's drier than previous years, but the roundness and juiciness here is Clare Valley Riesling at its mouthwatering best.

Balanced on a knife edge, this is a whip-smart Riesling release from the Adelina duo.

2019 Best's Foudre Ferment Riesling

The 2019 is the latest release of this unique and wonderful Australian Riesling.

Coming from vines planted in 1978 and 1998, this is, as James Halliday put it, "not your grandma's riesling".  With ruthless grape sorting,wild ferment in the Foudre, extended time on skins and plenty of lees stirring, this Riesling is all about texture and complexity. But the thing that sets this majestic Riesling apart is the searing acid backbone which drives the wine from beginning to end.

This is one of Best's more limited release wines and is never made in large amounts but it rates consistently amongst the finest Rieslings in Victoria.

Enjoy the ride.
