Vibrant pale green-gold straw colour.

Hallmark ‘Watervale’ aromas showing pure Riesling characteristics of fresh lemon-lime citrus, floral honeysuckle and a creamy richness.

A rare pairing. The generosity of flavour with beautiful lively precision and line. The flavours are fresh lemon citrus, with soft mineral acidity supported by a moreish, persistent and mouth-watering finish.

John Vickery is the acknowledged old master of Riesling in Australia, with an illustrious career spanning over fifty years, culminating in the extraordinary awards tally of more than fifty Trophies and over four hundred Gold Medals. The Rieslings he crafted from Watervale (in the Clare Valley) and Eden Valley (in the Barossa) stand tall as the epitome of this most majestic grape variety, each with a unique South Australian and sub-regional thumbprint. Vickery wines are made in collaboration with talented winemaker and family friend Philip Lehmann, so that John’s winemaking methods and knowledge will be preserved and passed on for generations to come, for the benefit of all lovers of classic Australian Riesling.

In addition to the Castine and Koerner blocks which have made up the majority of the last two vintages of Vickery Watervale, the ‘17 blend sees some beautiful old-vine fruit included from Paddy and Maxine Brazel’s 86- year-old plantings. Following picking the fruit was taken immediately to Watervale for pressing; avoiding extended skin contact. Stainless steel fermentation took place at our Barossa winery where all the parcels were kept separate until final blending.

As with all Vickery Rieslings, this wine will be bright and fresh in its youth and will reward careful cellaring for 7 - 10 years.
