Mr. Riggs 2020 Watervale Riesling (Clare Valley)

This wine is from Ben Riggs, formerly of McLaren Vale's Wirra Wirra winery. The cool climes of the Watervale subregion helped in a warm year like 2020, producing a classic Aussie Riesling that's perfumed but still superfresh and drier than the fruity nose suggests. Notes of lemon, lime, orange and ginger combine with crisp acidity and a talc-like texture. This wine could pair with a summer meal or gain more honeyed complexity in bottle from 2026 to 2030.
