Kilikanoon Golden Hillside Riesling 2021
- Light, aromatic
- Clare Valley
We are still wondering if this “Golden Hillside” is an actual place, or a mythical place of the gods. The riesling from the Hillside is nothing short of heavenly, from the high vineyards of Clare Valley, offering such an otherworldly balance of drool-worthy lime and sunshine-soaked lemons, refreshing minerality and cloudlike complexity.
“A classic expression offering lime cordial, jasmine, lemon pith and limestone nuances, leading to a finely textured palate that's juicy and linear. Brilliantly structured by firm acidity, finishing impressively long and engaging.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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.
