Legend Aussie Wine Critic Huon Hooke has kicked off 2022 in style declaring Vickery 2021 Watervale Riesling his #1 White Wine for January (also awarding it 5 stars). Crafted by Australia’s Riesling Grand Master John Vickery… in collaboration with super talented winemaker Keeda Zilm… the anointed one to ensure John’s methods and immense knowledge are preserved for future wine lovers.

Fine Wine Delivery have secured a rare “Direct ex Winery” allocation exclusive to our customers in NZ at a sensational $21.99 bottle.

As the late Max Schubert was the creator of Penfolds Grange and Australia’s Grand Master of Shiraz… John Vickery is the acknowledged Grand Master of Riesling in Australia, with an illustrious career spanning over 50 years, 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 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.

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

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 in its youth... that such magnificence can be bought for just $21.99 KIWI is not to be missed.

Best Wishes for 2022 from our Family - JEFF

2021 Vickery Watervale Riesling

Majestic, dry, delicate and pretty. Close to perfection…
