There’s a generosity to this wine, opening with lime, lemon and apple blossom, then throwing in hints of spice and lemon zest. The palate picks up the pace with flavours from here, there and everywhere. Lovely wine for early consumption.

Vickery Watervale Riesling – the holy trinity between John Vickery, Watervale in the Clare Valley and Riesling has been thrilling Riesling nuts for years. And the trend is set to continue under the Vickery label. This wine is fairly classic Watervale with layers of citrus and stony fruits. It is a bit more exotic than usual with a touch of guava coming from the warm season but still showing Watervale purity and focus. A wine that will please Vickery fans and good drinking over the medium term.

This wine is made by the Hesketh group in the style of – and with input from – the legendary riesling maker John Vickery. Sharply defined lemon-lime aromas are edged with mineral notes. The fruitiness is understated and there’s a note of talcum powder, which continues on the palate and finish. It’s well balanced, easy to drink young and will take some age well.
