Kirrihill E.B. Gleeson 'The Settler' Riesling 2019
- Fresh, juicy
- Clare Valley
Some producers are one-hit wonders, and some are as versatile as the day is long. Kirihill is in the latter camp, with great wines from shiraz, to cabernet, Malbec to Mataro. But of course, we wouldn’t be talking highlights if we weren’t talking riesling, and ‘The Settler’ is precisely that. From the WSS vineyard in Watervale - prized for its unique soils- this is intensely lime and citrus driven. A steely palate glides you into the refreshing lemon sherbet finish—a zippy way to slide into summer, fish and chips at the ready.
Full price $35.00 from the producer.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
