Jim Barry Watervale Riesling 2016


SKU 08728


This wine is a pale straw in the glass. The nose has a fantastic lift of punchy lemon sherbet, bath salts, orange blossom and freshly grated ginger, enhanced by quintessential Watervale Riesling musk. A wine of great line and drive, the palate has lashings of flavour with elements of lemon curd, grapefruit, guava and nashi pear. The palate over-delivers on flavour, with soda like minerality, and provides a generous wine with extraordinary length.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Watervale Riesling has a floral and delicate jasmine-laced nose, with lemon juice and acacia honey. Light, dry and crisp on the palate, this is very fine and long.

Wine SpectatorPlump and juicy, with pear, green apple and peach flavors accented by a squirt of lime juice. Fragrant, with a minerally detail on the finish. Drink now. 50 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastThis bright, fruit-powered wine offers hints of peach, tropical fruit and citrus, but there's also a compelling note of ginger that adds complexity to the nose and mouthwatering finish.
