James Suckling 94 points. Wine Front 93 points. Beautifully fresh and fragrant wine with intense lime juice and a fine, minerally spark. This has terrific detail on the palate and is really intense and flinty. Elegant with power. Drink now. Screw cap. 94 pts JS. Riesling fanciers should have Clonakilla’s on their radars already, but for the uninitiated this is a great introduction from 2016 – mineral-charged, tangy, succulent. It’s a very consistent wine, I reckon. Perhaps a slightly more zesty year in acid, is the only quiet shift. Good for refreshment factor.Pretty as. Fresh, flirty. Effortless drinking here, with a high quality...
97 Points – James Halliday Best in Variety – 2017 Halliday Wine Companion 97 Points – Campbell Mattinson Gold – Qantas Wine Show Gold – Perth Royal Wine Show Produced from mature vines in a region originally selected for this variety, Forest Hill’s Block 1 Riesling has gained world-wide recognition and support. The grapes from Block 1 result in wines of outstanding varietal flavours, true to Mount Barker. Fermented with wild yeasts to add palate richness and complexity while softening the vibrant, crisp natural acidity, the Forest Hill Rieslings are enhanced by a long, lingering, often flinty finish, ensuring wonderful graceful...
Grosset Wines philosophy has remained steadfast over thirty years. The emphasis is on purity of fruit. The organically managed vineyards are hand tended, and each bunch of grapes is harvested at optimum ripeness. The winemaking process is gentle and uncomplicated. With dedication, discipline and the application of knowledge garnered through decades of experience, the result is the finest expression of variety and place. The significantly later harvest has produced an extraordinary ‘Polish Hill’. Voluminous floral aromatics, with hints of talc and lavender, produce an exuberant youthfulness that gives vitality to a palate fleshed out...
Most would consider that Grosset Polish Hill is always produced from low yielding vines, so what happens when the Clare Valley’s lack of winter rain results in the ‘lowest yielding vintage for decades’. Something special. There are subtle yet distinct floral aromatics of violets and lavender, lemon and lime blossom perfumes that persist. This is different from the restraint and shyness of most ‘Polish Hill’ Riesling on release – and worth celebrating because of it. The intense, lime juice flavours and fine linear structure is more dramatic, more overtly tight than most of these wines. It is powerful, multi-layered, richly...
~ Buy Six and Pay $46 each~ Grosset Springvale Riesling 2017 Awards: Langton Classification VI: Rated ‘Outstanding’ Wine Ark: one of Australia’s ‘Five Most Collected White Wines’ Reviews: Toni Paterson, The Real Review, 6th October 2017 Exquisite, pure citrus aromas. The palate is wildly intense with perfectly integrated acidity and palate softness. There is a pleasing tang at the front, followed by a focused, gently textural, sweet-lemon middle. The mineral core running through the wine is simply captivating. Magic. 96 Points.
James Halliday 95 points. Like all Kilikanoon's Rieslings, no frills to the vinification, just attention to detail. Incongruously, it is a blend of three vineyards. The bouquet owes as much to minerally notes as to citrus fruit, and the palate duly brings structure and length for the lemon/lime flavours and firm finish. JH. WINERY NOTES: Winemaking Made as a blend of three higher altitude Watervale sites, all fruit was hand picked and sorted with only free run juice used for the final cuvee. Appearance Pale straw in appearance with brilliant clarity and youthful green tints. Nose Lifted floral notes and intense citrus flavours are a...
Pale straw green in colour, Apple and lime juice with a smidge of spice. Well balanced and refreshing, finishes fresh, precise & crisp. It is the perfect wine to pair with seafood, cheese and chicken. It's works beautifully with Asian flavours and will certainly stand up to spicier foods. It's a great example of Coonawarra style Riesling. Winemaker: Bruce Gregory.
95 Points 1940s vines. Textural, powerful, persistent. Lime juice and crystals, talc and spice, mineral. A hint of orange blossom. A trace of fruit sweetness. It’s pretty and it’s purposeful and it feels soft as it extends along your tongue. A treat of a wine. Halliday Wine Companion.

Huon Hooke 94 points. Beautifully pure and focused aromatics of freshly squeezed lemon juice. The palate is intensely flavoured with ripe citrus flavours and a lovely long line of acidity. This is a stunning wine with excellent cellaring potential. One of the best O'Leary Walker Watervale rieslings I have tried 18 Apr 2017 2017–2031.
