A precise portrait of Eden Valley riesling achieved despite a torrid growing season, the downside the miserable size of the yield, the upside its floral lime/lemon aromas, the palate with marvellous juicy flavours framed by mouthwatering acidity. - James Halliday Over half a century's worth of experience has given John Vickery an understanding of Riesling grapes that is un-matched. It is this knowledge, combined with his reputation for extraordinary attention to detail, that has produced Australia's finest Rieslings. Intense floral notes with lime and lemon. On the palate, vibrant and powerful with grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, and undertones of minerality with juniper and clove. Juicy, mouth-watering acid with an intense finish. Great to have with family and friends and wood fired pizza.

Vickery is a brand synonymous with high quality Riesling. Sourced from Eden Barossa Valley grapes, this has South Australian quality Riesling stamped all over it. It is classic Riesling from beginning to finish. Clear brilliant yellow straw. Upfront fullsome nose, again classic. Musk, orange, lime and lemons abound. An orchard of good solid aromas, deep and fruit focused. Lively acidity supports the fruit, marrying well with it delivering a fresh crisp palate of lemons, limes, green herbs and musk – dry and lightly sweet on the finish, a bit of sweet and sour but in a very nice long smooth easy to drink way. All this augurs well for a long development in the future. Indeed it opened up like a beautiful flower in the glass, with me adding points by the swirl. And value drinking at this price point. Try it with wood fired cherry tomato and buffalo mozzarella pizza. Drink to 2029 plus.
