O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2016

The annual release of O'Leary Walker's Watervale and Polish Hill River Rieslings is an event to keep an eye out for. Generally found around the $20-25 mark, representing excellent drinking now and rewarding the patient wine buyer with an ability to age.

Lime, florals, a touch of Talc that then segues  to some tropical fruit. More floral than I recall in previous years. 

Doesn't present the driving, linear acidic spine that I've come to (expect?) see. More a definite citrus driven freshness, bright, and chilled has me yearning for the warmer months. 

Finishes reasonably well. Solid. 90
