Pale straw with lime hues. Intense, lifted aromas of lime leaf and citrus zest supported by lively jasmine floral notes, bath salts and crushed herbs.

The palate is tight and focused, displaying dominating lime flavours and ripe citrus, beautiful purity, and mineral notes leading to a long, intense, crisp finish with steely acidity.

James Halliday (JH) : 95 Points (2017)
Rich and layered, with a mix of Rose's lime and Meyer lemon fruit flavours. That the balance of flavours and length are excellent is no surprise given the alcohol, pH and titratable acidity are all text book. Hard work in the vineyard has paid off handsomely.

Decanter (DCT) : 95 Points (2017)
Sourced from both younger and older vine parcels at 500m on sandy loam over gravel with some clay. It's from a milder year with good rainfall, wed to classic, protective winemaking that's produced terrific purity, persistence and perfume. Exotic lemongrass and kaffir lime notes mingle with fresh, zesty, juicy finger lime and crisp apple on a distinctly saline palate. It's vibrant but focused, with a chalky finish and whetstone tang.Drinking Window 2018 - 2032

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2017)
Sourced from vines planted in the 1960s, the 2017 Julius Riesling features scents of lime blossoms and green apples. It's medium-bodied and seems soft and round upon first glance, with hints of peach leading a lovely integration of fruit and acidity. While already charming, it appears to have the backbone to support a decade or so of aging.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2017)
A very citrusy riesling with lime and green apples, as well as more floral elements in the form of cherry blossoms and chalk undertones. Linear and taut on the palate with steely acidity and no shortage of green fruit. A finely spiced finish. 

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2017)
This wine sings a quiet tune of lime, flower blossoms, orange peel and talc. The talc continues on the palate in the form of a powdery texture and the delicate citrus flavors are enhanced by mouthwatering acidity

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2017)
This is a fleshy, rich vintage of Julius, its scents of citrus blossom deepened by some smoky, vegetal tones. Julius typically begins to show itself six to eight years from the vintage; this wine’s stoniness and firm acidity suggest it will live for many years after that.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2014)
Vivid straw. Fresh, incisive scents of green apple, lemon pith and honeysuckle, along with hints of dusty minerals and quinine. Energetic, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit flavors pick up a floral nuance with air. Finishes with tangy mineral cut, a lingering floral quality and strong persistence.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2013)
Lean and sleek, layering the green apple and ripe golden pineapple flavors with hints of lime blossom as the dry finish lingers elegantly. Drink now through 2025

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16.5 Points (2013)
Tasted May 2014 - Biodynamic. Refined and floral nose and only just off dry on the palate. Racy. Wild flowers!

This Riesling Icewine shows the elegance of tropical aromas and flavours of lemon and lime. The good acidity of Riesling allows for a refreshing mouth feel amid the many layers of flavours that unfold.
