Best's rugged location in the Grampian ranges of western Victoria is as far from the hot, dry desert image of Oz as it gets. Combine the region's wet, cool climate with a unique and historic winery, and the results are generally excellent. This Riesling is young and austere but promises great things for the future. A slight petrol note on the nose is quickly followed by delicate honeyed nuts, bright lemon-lime, lavender and dried green herbs. The palate is a tightrope walk of pristine acidity, slippery texture and bright fruit. Drink 2021-2030, at least.

Scents of crushed stone, lemon and lime zest and hints of green apple permeate the nose of the 2018 Riesling. It's a lean, racy wine, light to medium-bodied, weighing in at 11% alcohol, yet with presence, concentrated fruit flavors and length, which shows how irrelevant numbers can sometimes be. Like many of the world's fine Rieslings, it should drink well over a broad range of years-at least through 2030.
