2020 Adelina Riesling Watervale Clare Valley – As always, the Watervale hails from the Gully View vineyard, which is on red loamy clay over limestone. This is the vineyard that historically supplied Leo Buring, once the maker of Australia’s greatest Rieslings. As for the Polish Hill River Riesling, the fruit was de-stemmed and crushed before pressing, the free-run juice then settled, racked and fermented, but here Col halted the ferment with around 5 g/L residual sugar to balance the muscular acidity that this terroir delivers. It’s a pithy, chalky and racy white, with lemon and grapefruit juice notes and juicy, slightly salty close. The residual is perfectly pitched.
