More information on wine critics and ratings

Aromas of lychee, stonefruit and florals. The palate is peachy, dense and completely refreshing with a sherbet finish. The residual sugar is so completely integrated with the intense fruit flavour that it becomes somewhat unnoticeable. It has such a seamless simplicity of rightness about it that it is hard to pull out a single feature to comment on.

It’s just about being right. This wine is.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 96 Points (2016)
Lovely juicy riesling - very concentrated with lime, apple, white flowers and a suggestion of apricot and stone fruits. Absolutely delicious wine with wonderful acid/sweetness tension and a lingering finish. Very classy wine that promises to age magnificently.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2015)
Rich, spicy and floral, with peach and melon flavors at the core, dried rose petal and mango notes lingering on the finish, where the refreshing acidity lingers deftly. Drink now. 681 cases made.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2014)
An all-day wine, perfectly balanced sugar and acidity in this ultra-fragrant off-dry style of riesling. The nose is really expressive, offering up lime citrus, lime blossom and lime leaf notes, pure and scintillating, crushed rocky savory elements in the background too. The palate has a long, neat and smooth-honed shape with lime and white nectarine fruit flavors, graceful with intensity and drive. Drink now.
