2023 Koerner Watervale Riesling – 92 Points – Erin Larkin (The Wine Advocate)

The 2023 Watervale Gullyview & Parish Vineyards Riesling leads with lanolin and cheesecloth, scratched citrus and brine. In the mouth, the wine is plump and juicy but driven by edgy acidity. This is quite an exciting wine to drink; it feels textural and elemental and even a little primal. It's great. I find this the most immediately appealing of the Rieslings on the bench here today; perhaps it's not as pure as some of the others, but this feels very complete. 11.6% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.

92 points
