This 2023 O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling is a typically perfumed Clare Riesling with aromas of bath powder and a hint of musk sticks. The palate offers impressive vibrancy and intensity, with powerful florals, orange rind, lemon, lime notes with delicate crisp natural acidity rounding off this wonderfully structured wine.
"96 Points. Oh my. How good is this? This is the essence of Polish Hill River Riesling: the concentration of fruit, the depth, the texture, the spice, the quiet power. It’s all here. Just released and ready to be savoured and enjoyed. Jasmine, bergamot, citrus, grapefruit, a sprinkle of rosemary and white pepper aromas. How intriguing are those spices! Grown under organic methods, it brings extraordinary depth of citrus (grapefruit, Meyer lemon), green apple and lime zest married to an equally impressive depth of background spice, including earthy ginger and a light shake of white pepper. Acidity is well-honed with a mineral clean edge. This is what Polish Hill River Riesling is all about. $30. Drink: 2023-2037"- Jeni Port, winepilot.com.
"95 Points. Mineral-savoury start with wet stones, flint, brown limes and sage. Flavours are a pleasant continuation, full and round, filled with fleshy nectarines and pears in the middle, slightly grilled. Grapefruit finish with a dusting of pepper and nutmeg spice. I really enjoy the structure and texture of this wine, it has weight and detail. Feels like a whole wine, with front middle and back, confident and very well made. It’s a great deal of satisfaction.
