100 Best Australian Wines 18/19

2017 Mount Horrocks, Watervale Riesling

By Matthew Jukes

This is my favourite vintage of Stephanie Toole’s dry Riesling in years! The slender, rapier sharp fruit is epic with pithy, chalky notes and no overt juiciness whatsoever. It is a very grown up and stripped down style and this makes it ravishing. The scent is pure and much more intense than the pale colour suggests and I have no doubt it will age very gently and for a long time.
