Mount Horrocks 2018 Watervale Riesling

By Winsor Dobbin

Riesling is my “go to” grape for spring and summer quaffing – and this new Clare Valley release is right in the grove; fresh, vibrant and citrusy with minerality and crisp acid finish. There is plenty of length to this estate-grown single vineyard riesling from Watervale and all Stephanie Toole’s wines are certified organic and are vegan friendly. This is bone dry and would pair brilliantly with fresh oysters, pan-fried King George whiting, or simply on the deck with some Justin Isbell on the stereo.

Damn fine drinking. Drink now or cellar.
