Another very fresh and vital release under this label. The Wirra Wirra The Lost Watch Riesling 2020 is especially taut and lively.
Water clear and ultra pure Adelaide Hills Riesling. Not sharp-edged, ripeness is tempered by pristine acidity. Delicacy without being harsh. Maybe a little too lean, but tempered with such linearity and precision. Precise is a great word here – it’s laser-etched white wine and yet not hard. Really quite delicious instead.
Best drinking: now to ten years. But I like it best now. 18/20, 93/100. 13%, $25. Wirra Wirra website. Would I buy it? Worth a bottle at this price.
