2023 Reillys Watervale Riesling
Our 2023 Riesling is handcrafted from fruit grown on elevated sites at both Smyth and St Clare vineyards where rich red loam overlays deep limestone.
This delicate wine shows lifted floral aromas with a rich palate of refreshing lemon and lime followed by crisp acid on the finish.
Enjoy chilled with seafood or Asian cuisine.

92 POINTS ~ Halliday Wine Companion 2020, www.winecompanion.com.au
"Juicy riffs of quince, candied citrus zest, and orange blossom are helped by a judicious dollop of fruit sweetness across the wine's aft to galvanize flavour while toning the high acidity of the variety. Long and plenty energetic."
90 POINTS ~ James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com
“This is extremely perfumed with lime-peel and flint aromas. Medium-bodied, round and compact. Tangy finish. Drink now.”

"Perfumed flowers + a smidge of lime on the bouquet, lively citrus flavours that jazz up the palate leading to a crisp, clean lingering finish. WILL BECOME A CLASSIC!"

"A vibrant pale straw colour with some fresh green hues. The nose is delicate but clear notes of citrus, lime, and melon permeate through. On the palate, the qualities of a young Clare Valley Riesling shine through. This wine is fruit-driven with balanced acidity. Great drinking, don’t wait."
4 STARS ~ Winestate Magazine, Annual Riesling Awards & Best Wines of 2017
"Ripe and spicy fruit aromas with a candied edge. Good varietal fruit character on the youthful and seamlessly balanced palate.”
