In 1986, the Barry family purchased the Florita Vineyard in 1986, a property where John Vickery had planted vines for his Leo Buring Rieslings in 1962. The Barrys kept Vickery’s original vines and have planted more; they produce their top riesling from the site—Florita—as well as this Watervale bottling. It’s hard to find many $20 wines with the energy, drive and satisfaction this one offers. It’s pure Clare riesling, from the platinum color to the ghosting of lime flavors, floral, spicy, dense and weightless. It gives a tingle of talc and a dry peach savor that may make your mouth water, demanding an oyster. Come back to it in six or eight years and that acidity will be less demanding, the complexity of the wine then ready for an oyster pan roast
