This is one of our favourite wines from the 2019 Riesling Galaxy tasting. Adelina’s Polish Hill River Riesling 2018 is pure, pure and pure. So precise and composed. The citrus fruit hovers over a bed of cold, wet stone. Intoxicating.
As with the Watervale Riesling, the Polish Hill River fruit is handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented and raised in stainless tanks. The difference here is that the balance of fruit and acidity is such that Col ferments the Polish Hill River bone-dry, whereas the Watervale is bottled with a little residual sweetness. It’s the more linear expression of the two Rieslings but it’s no less impressive.
