2023 Halliday Wine Companion Scores


2021 Watervale Riesling

Gold: 95 Points

From 51yo dry-grown vines, hand picked and whole-bunch pressed. This is very smart. It is mineral, tightly coiled, powerful and sleek, all at once. The fruit is embedded in the acid; the acid likewise is wrapped in a sheath of talcy phenolics. Very fine ... I love the spool of flavour through the finish. Pristine. Stonking value for money. Erin Larkin
