The Vickery Watervale Reserve Riesling is from the Watervale sub-region of Clare Valley; Koerner G6 Block. Such an interesting riesling. So much body and such good intensity. It’s textural too. Aromas of fresh lemon zest and lime curd Swith slight developed notes of fig and honey. It tastes of lime leaf, lemon and orange blossom. Great with lemongrass barbequed pork.

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, and partnering with growers who have the right vineyards in the right locations to produce the best possible fruit. Once fruit is picked at optimum ripeness, Keeda and John employ the winemaking techniques that he has refined and perfected over time, to 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. In exceptional vintages a reserve wine is made. The Reserve Eden Valley Riesling showcases all the best of the 2017 vintage.
