Description

As the late Max Schubert (creator of Penfolds Grange) was Australia’s Grand Master of Shiraz… John Vickery is the acknowledged Grand Master of Riesling in Australia, with an illustrious career spanning decades, culminating in an extraordinary 50 Show Trophies & 400+ Gold Medals for his Rieslings. I have had the privilege in my lifetime of engaging with both Max & John… they are humble, passionate men who devoted their lifetimes to their craft, which made them the most successful and recognised winemakers in their fields. John famously crafted the long living, mesmerising Leo Buring Rieslings from Watervale (in the Clare Valley) and Eden Valley (in the Barossa) – Leo Buring Leonay becoming part of Australia’s winemaking fokelore. These days John’s “Vickery” Rieslings are made in collaboration with uber talented winemaker Keeda Zilm… ensuring his winemaking methods and knowledge will be preserved and passed on for generations to come, for the benefit of all lovers of classic Australian Riesling. This Vickery 2021 Watervale Riesling has all the trademark qualities of John’s winemaking plus the region’s classic aromas and structure... it will live for 20+ years in quality storage and develop rounder, honeyed richness from 2028 on. Stunning with lightly spiced cuisine and fatty seafoods

Smells

Captivating aromas of white pepper, perfumed florals, lime skin, sweet lemonade and honeysuckle

Tastes

Refreshingly dry and beautifully framed with a beguiling citrus freshness coursing through its palate. Lime skin and kaffir lime leaf flavours straddle the palate giving way to a salivating salted lemon tang on the finish. Clean, fresh, and invigorating with electrifyingly fine acidity, guaranteeing a long life ahead.
