Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling 2015
By Campbell Mattison
It’s pretty simple. If you like young Clare Valley Riesling, you will love this release. It’s a quality wine but more so it’s a charming one. It is because it doesn’t try too hard/it is what it is. It’s pure and citrussy with sherbet and bath salt/talc characters. It has finesse. It doesn’t dart through the palate, but it moves with certainty, and inevitability, towards a long finish. It’s Riesling without a cloud in its sky.
