John Vickery was a legend of the Australian wine industry and is widely acknowledged as the old master of Riesling. His illustrious career spanned over 50 years at the likes of Leo Buring and Richmond Grove during which time he amassed more than 50 Trophies and over 400 gold medals. He was also responsible for the re-introduction of screw caps with his 1998 Richmond Grove Watervale Riesling.

A magnificent Eden Valley Riesling that boasts terrific fruit intensity, tension and textural volume.

Fruit was sourced from the Mason, Schubert and Stephens family vineyards with vines planted in 2001, 1961 & 1971 respectively. Brilliant water like colour with a distinctive greenish tinge to the edges. Intense lime, citrus and green apple scents are intermeshed with orange rind, talc and steely mineral notes. Super scrumptious, the palate possesses outstanding concentration, power and textural volume with steely mineral infused acidity providing tension. Lime, citrus and orange rind flavours completely engulf the mouth with green apple and chalky talc characters flowing through the back half. Mouth wateringly long it finishes dry and crunchy with terrific intensity.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
