2020 Frankland Estate Alter Weg Riesling
One of the country's preeminent Riesling exponents here unleashing an alt-styling of their pet variety.
The Alter Weg is a Riesling inspired by the 'old-school' winemaking methodology practiced by the great Germanic Riesling makers of the old world. This is first class, organically grown fruit fermented for a time on skins, then matured on lees in barrel for 10 months prior to release.
It's a powerful, potent Riesling with layers of textural intrigue. In this wine, the new world meets the old. An awesome expression of Frankland River Riesling that will blow your hair back.Read more about 2020 Frankland Estate Alter Weg Riesling
2021 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling
The Polish Hill River Riesling comes from a single block in the Polish Hill sub-region of the Clare Valley.
John Hughes thinks this vineyard produces the best fruit of all his vineyard sources.
There's an extra level of intensity here. That classic iron bar of acidity as a spine, the chalky crunch of a green apple, wonderful perfume and glorious purity.
This sits comfortably alongside the best wines from this famous sub-region of the Clare.Read more about 2021 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling
2021 Bests Great Western Riesling
"Its beauty is effortless."
Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
As always, this wine from Best's is one of the most approachable and easy-to-enjoy Rieslings around, while being an equally great cellaring prospect.
Best's have a long history with this variety, with winemaker Justin Purser suggesting this release from the well-balanced vintage is more reminiscent of those Rieslings from the 80's and 90's with its balance, delicacy and easy charm.
One of Victoria's most bankable Rieslings, year-in, year-out.Read more about 2021 Bests Great Western Riesling
2020 KT Riesling Churinga Clare Valley
KT is all about Riesling, it’s her raison d'etre, and the reason she is so madly in love with the Clare Valley in general, and Watervale specifically.
This single site expression from the Churinga vineyard comes off dry grown vines planted in 1954. To Kerri, Riesling is the variety that most expresses its origins, thus these wines are an homage to the growers she works with and their special sites.
All the hallmarks of Watervale here, minerally, with citrus and tropical fruit driving the flavour profile. There is an amazing tension to this wine, with exceptional length, line, and precision.Read more about 2020 KT Riesling Churinga Clare Valley
2021 Stargazer Single Vineyard Riesling
Sam Connew grows her own Riesling on the Palisander vineyard, in Coal River Valley, TAS.
It's an exciting development for Sam and her brand, now having viticultural control over her fruit. The first few releases have been excellent.
The thumbprint of Tasmanian terroir shines through, but there's possibly more joy to had in this wine in its youth than usual. Sam works lovely texture into the wine, utilising a touch of skin contact, some lees stirring and a dab of sweetness to allow the wine to find balance in its youth.
This is a classy Riesling with a generous personality.Read more about 2021 Stargazer Single Vineyard Riesling
2021 Ottelia Riesling
This a great value Riesling from a family-owned operation on the Limestone Coast.
It's been one of the great buys of Australian Riesling for a few years now, ever since the 2017 edition was announced as James Halliday's lowest ever priced 98 point Riesling. Subsequent vintages have not disappointed..
It's razor sharp and peircing in its style, a framework of incredible acidty rocketing along a bed of zingy citrus fruit, it's needle-like in its thrust.
It's a delicious, dry and crunchy Riesling, and once again, it's great value of money.Read more about 2021 Ottelia Riesling
