2016 Reillys Museum Release Watervale Riesling

This wine is the fourth vintage release under our new Museum Release label, the first vintage being 2008.

A premium parcel of our Watervale Riesling has been selected from prolonged bottle maturation and museum release.

Youthful characters of citrus zest and apple blossom are accompanied by subtle honey and textured mouthfeel.

Perfectly balanced acidity allows further bottle maturation until 2026.

RIESLING OF THE YEAR TROPHY ~ 2018 Winestate Magazine Wine of the Year Awards

5 STARS ~ Winestate Magazine, July/August 2018
"Developed toasty/kero nose with some attractive lemon butter-like notes. Lovely drive, length, and balance to the palate with citrus flavours laced with toasty aged characters."

93 PTS ~ James Halliday Wine Companion 2020, www.winecompanion.com.au
"This retains a stealth and grace despite its age that is, frankly, uncanny. A cool year and challenging for many, this boasts cumquat, kerosene, apple blossom, jasmine, and apricot pith flavours careening along bright acid rails. Lime, too, of course. The nose is Germanic; confident and poised."

Toni Paterson, The Real Review, www.therealreview.com
"Bright yellow-gold hues. It's great to see a Riesling with bottle age. A beautifully toasty nose with accents of lemon butter. Full-flavoured, generous, and juicy with impressive freshness. The honeyed pear flavours are quite more-ish."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review, www.therealreview.com
"Deep buttercup-yellow colour, with a reserved but toasty-developed bouquet that reflects bottle-age. The wine is dry and savoury and still a little tight on the palate. There's a curious note of white pepper, especially on the nose. It's lean and taut and very dry on the tongue."

2008 Vintage

4.5 STARS ~ Winestate Magazine, July/August 2018
"A beautifully aged, golden-hued wine with an interesting mix of toasty buttery age and crisp citrus fruit characters. Very dry style, great dinner wine."
