2007 Mav­er­ick Trial Hill Eden Val­ley Ries­ling THE 2007 Trial Hill Eden Val­ley Ries­ling (94 points, $33) is re­mark­ably good given the hot, dry, early-ripen­ing vin­tage. It comes from a 2ha block on a north­east-fac­ing slope in an am­phithe­atre high in the val­ley and has lemon, lime, min­eral and spice aro­mas, then a very in­tense and long palate of ripe ap­ple and cit­rus flavours, fin­ish­ing with fresh, cit­rusy acid­ity. It may live and de­velop for a decade but there is abun­dant flavour now, so there is no need to wait. www.mav­er­ick­ James Halliday
