This Reilly’s Watervale Riesling is from 2015, so obviously tasted as a young and fresh style. But with the bursting fruit, lots of freshness and a very persistent flavour definitely has me thinking this would be even more sensational in 10-15 years time.
On the nose there are beautiful floral notes, freshly squeezed citrus and a slight spicy edge. On the palate, the Reillys Riesling is packed full of fresh tropical fruit, unripe pineapple and lime juice. A touch of citrus pith adds a bit of grip. The flavours (and acidity) linger for a longer than I can hold my concentration. At a recommended retail price of $22 its very good value.
