The Vickery Riesling is a classic example of this wine style. Bright vivaciuos colours , lifted aromatics with intense fruit flavours abound. Fresh lime acidity completes a long and persistent finish. Pairs perfectly with King George Whiting pan fried in butter with a lemon wedge and fat cut chips.

Vickery wines is the culmination of John Vickery’s half-century of winemaking experience, partnered alongside our talented winemaking team. Together they create Rieslings that showcase John’s extensive expertise with the most noble of white wine varieties.
It begins in the regions where John made his mark. Eden Valley in the Barossa and Watervale in the Clare Valley. It goes further into the sub-districts of these regions that John knows intimately. It is about partnering with growers who have the right vineyards in the right locations to produce the best fruit. Once fruit is picked at optimum ripeness, Keeda and John employ the winemaking techniques that he has refined and perfected over time. They craft Rieslings that carry his signature style and fastidious quality standards.
The Vickery label is in effect, a time capsule for John’s wealth of winemaking knowledge. It allows his experience and winemaking techniques to be used without compromise, and then passed on to current and future generations of Riesling winemakers. The Vickery Watervale Riesling is a great example of these winemaking techniques ensuring that the exceptional fruit from the vineyard reaches it’s full potential.
