  1. Nick O'Leary Riesling 2019 375ml
    Nick O'Leary Riesling 2019 375ml

    At the ripe old age of 28, Nick O'Leary had been involved in the wine industry for over a decade, working variously in retail, wholesale, viticulture and winemaking. Two years earlier he had laid the foundation for Nick O'Leary Wines, purchasing shiraz from local vignerons (commencing in 2006); riesling following in '08.
    His wines have had extraordinarily consistent success in local wine shows and competitions since the first vintages, and are building on that early success in spectacular fashion. At the NSW Wine Awards '15, the 2014 Shiraz was awarded the NSW Wine of the Year Trophy exactly as the 2013 Shiraz was in the prior year - the first time any winery had won the award in consecutive years. JAMES HALLIDAY

    A good season for CBR Riesling, I take it, given Our Mike’s recent reviews.

    Distinctly spicy, ginger and that, green apple and lime, light powdery texture, positive acidity, though it feels soft and comely in a way, juice and zest and length as it goes. Excellent. A beauty. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  2. Bests Great Western Riesling 2021
    Bests Great Western Riesling 2021

    Great Western Riesling. As I say every year: yes please.

    It’s just such a lovely wine to drink. It offers intensity and character in the most undemanding of ways: one sip and you’re off and away. Lime, talc and steel. A whisper of mandarin. And apple, green apple. Its beauty is effortless. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    What is there to say about the classic Aussie Rielsing? Everything you could want and more. The variety was first planted as part of Henry Best's 'Nursery Block' vineyard back in the 1860's and has been an integral part of the Best's potfolio for over 20 years. A national treasure we think that marries ripe fruit and crystalline purity at its best.

  3. Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020
    Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020

    How do they do it? This has been a PWS favourite for some time now and it never fails to deliver. Made by Rheinhessen legends Gunderloch with vineyards  close to the Rhines south-east steep slopes. The combination of the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. If you are a German riesling fan it would be hard to beat this for the sheer quality and insane value it represents.

    The wine shows lovely stone fruit, peach and pithy characters as it opens in the glass. There is a salty mineral hit to that is really lovely. The fresh natural acidity zip through the ripe and spice flecked palate while a little aromatic lift gives this some real interest. Dry, fresh and full of character. PWS

  4. Stadt Krems Lossterrassen Gruner Veltliner 2020
    Stadt Krems Lossterrassen Gruner Veltliner 2020
    A very attractive, fruit-driven gruner veltliner, rippling with white-apple, white-peach and pepper aromas. Juicy and polished with lively acidity that’s already beautifully integrated. Good length. Drink now. Screw cap. JAMES SUCKLING

    With more than 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine-producers in Austria, even in the whole of Europe. Fritz Miesbauer and the team cultivate 31 hectares of vineyards on the estate, whose holdings are exclusively on the best terraced locations of the city of Krems. The results are dynamic and modern wines, with lovely purity and a wonderful sense of place.

    Nick O'Leary Riesling 2021

    A good season for CBR Riesling, I take it, given Our Mike’s recent reviews.

    Distinctly spicy, ginger and that, green apple and lime, light powdery texture, positive acidity, though it feels soft and comely in a way, juice and zest and length as it goes. Excellent. A beauty. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

    Situated in the picturesque Hall Valley, in the Murrumbidgee River corridor, just outside the ACT, the estate incorporates a modern winemaking facility and 5-hectare vineyard. A strong focus on hand worked Shiraz and Riesling wines that truly exhibit the character of our region as well as expressing unique personality and style.

    A Canberra regional blend, consisting of 9 different vineyard parcels. Grapes were hand harvested, then whole bunch pressed into stainless steel tanks and the wine held on light lees work for added texture.

    White flowers, apple blossom and citrus. The palate is generous with a powerful mix of Granny Smith apple and freshly squeezed lime. The mouth-watering natural acidity leads to a pristine palate of balance and length. The lees works gives a lovely grip and softens and brings out some of that mid-palate juiciness that kicks the fruit along to a taught close. Yum!

  6. O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2021
    O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2021

    Sub-regional differences between Watervale and Polish Hill River, both in the Clare Valley, can be quite marked. In the 2021 rieslings from O’Leary Walker, they most certainly are.

    This is so direct, so dry and so intense. It’s a statement in pure, clean form. It’s beset with gravel, steel and kaffir lime juice/leaf notes, and it drives piercingly long through the finish. Drink the Watervale, cellar the Polish Hill River. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  7. Trimbach Reserve Riesling 2018 375ml
    Trimbach Reserve Riesling 2018 375ml
    Trimbach is at the summit of dry white winemaking. CLIVE COATEDS M.W.

    With viticultural origins going back to 1626 this family owned estate produces some of the finest wines not only of Alsace, but indeed the entire world of wine. Around the villages of Ribeauvillé and Hunawihr, the Trimbach family owns 57 hectares of vineyards from some of the most famed sites in the region. 

    The reserve wines are sourced from rigorously selected grapes grown in and around Ribeauville and surrounding villages. They are fermented dry and text book example of classic Alsace fair.

    Quince, pear and apple with a touch of mandarin open to an exotic and layered nose. There is a touch of lime zest and white pepper folded into the soft fruits. The clean pristine fruit is sliced down the middle of the palate with a racy, tight quartz-mineral core. On the close the palate shifts toward more tropical notes and a sense of opulence that is kept in check by a dry and mineral finish. PWS

  8. Swinney Riesling 2021
    Swinney Riesling 2021

    A whole bunch pressed riesling with time on lees. It’s from the excellent Powderbark vineyard of Swinney. When I see the name Swinney a Victorian era detective comes to mind.

    Pretty perfume of jasmine, lemon-lime Splice ice blocks, lemon sorbet, almond, fresh milk, struck flint. Lovely start. Soft in the palate but with a very, very racy core of limey, zesty acidity, so very refreshing in feel with tension and precision on hand. It belts through the palate, a whip crack of zingy tang and sorbet-like mouth-watering pucker. Great regional character, good detail, bright and oh so vibrant. Acid hounds line up!

  9. Schmolzer and Brown Obstgarten K Riesling 2019
    Schmolzer and Brown Obstgarten K Riesling 2019
    One of our key wine team members, Kay Reynolds has chosen this for his staff pick for 2021, here's why:

    Those that know me know how much I love Riesling and this delight by Schmolzer & Brown doesn’t disappoint. Made from the highest altitude Riesling vineyard in Victoria on the Whitlands high plateau of King Valley, it offers an array of complex fruit from 2 pickings which highlight site and variety perfectly. With a good wack of residual sugar left in this wine, necessary to balance the ultra-refreshing natural acidity this cool-climate site offers, the wine is poised, electric and just downright delicious. Thank you to Tessa and Jeremy for making this wine and showcasing such a lovely site in the north-east. KAY REYNOLDS, PWS

  10. Markus Molitor Haus Klosterberg Riesling 1 Liter Dry 2019
    Markus Molitor Haus Klosterberg Riesling 1 Liter Dry 2019

    The wine of the year, usually causes me a good deal of anxiety. Oh the pressure…. There was a lot of competition this year too. Despite spending so much time locked in the house I still managed to find an excuse to drink well. Or maybe that was my excuse. Chicken or the egg kind of scenario there.
    I digress. I looked in to this and I have purchased 7.2% of the total volume of this wine that PWS has sold so far. I don't think many weeks have gone by since this was released that I haven't had one in the fridge. In recent times it has been shared liberally with friends, neighbours and family.
    What makes this my wine of the year? First it is 1 litre. That plays a key role in my thinking. Secondly its stupendously good, uber fresh, textural, dry, saline, appealing, brimming with charm, buoyant and playful. So totally delicious that you kind of forget that for a wine of this category the quality is outstanding. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, for the quality that it does deliver this is insane value. Ok, also it's one litre, did I mention that? ROSCOE

  11. Knight's Granite Hills '1971' Block  Riesling 2021
    Knight's Granite Hills '1971' Block Riesling 2021
    This is one of those wines that every time it comes across the tasting table we all let out little moans of pleasure, "ooh's" and "ah's", muttering under our breath "so good, so tasty".

    This comes off the first block of riesling planted at the site in the Macedon Ranges at Lew Knights property. All hand picked and limited production. It has the Euro line to it with pithy lemon fruits, grapefruit crunch and oodles of punchy citrus flavour that soars along the palate. Its full of textured, minerally goodness and ripples of acidity ride through the core of juicy fruit. There is wonderful tension and energy here and this ALWAYS looks so good! One Australia's best riesling.

  12. Meadowbank Riesling 2021
    Meadowbank Riesling 2021
    Meadowbank's Riesling vines (mostly Geisenheim 198 clone) are spread across two sites, one planted in 1974 and the other in 2005. This juicy and spine-tingling Riesling was hand-picked from these sandy, north-facing slopes, whole-cluster pressed and naturally fermented (50% in stainless steel for freshness, and 50% wild-fermented in old French barriques for texture). Both parcels were matured on their lees for three months before blending and bottling without fining. Dredge describes 2021 was an interesting vintage, characterised by very light yields but with excellent flavour intensity. Bottled without fining.
