James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2015)
The nose veers more towards loquat, nectarines, green pears and preserved lemons. The palate is nicely rounded but with an undercurrent of some tangy acidity, which drives the spicy and herbal elements through to the flavorful finish.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90+ Points (2015)
Opening with lemongrass, fennel, white pepper and chalk dust notes, the 2015 Louis Semillon is dry, light-bodied and tightly wound at this youthful stage, offering thirst-quenching elegance for now with a promise of loads more to come with 7-10 years cellaring.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2014)
Nov 15, 2016 - Vibrant and effusive, with honey and brioche flavors that are elegant and lush. Fried pineapple and lemony touches show on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2026. –MW

James Halliday (JH) : 94 Points (2013)
Gleaming straw-green; an intense, pure, long and focused evocation of semillon with lemon zest, lemon juice and lemongrass flavours on the bright, crisp and long palate. Will age superbly, however great its appeal right now.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 89 Points (2013)
Pale yellow. Nervy, spicy, focused scents of lemon-lime, quince and jasmine scents, plus a hint of green cardamom. Chewy and slightly ungiving on the palate, offering sappy, refreshingly bitter citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors and a spicy ginger flourish on the back half. Finishes on a bitter citrus pith note, with good thrust and gentle spiciness.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16+ Points (2012)
Tasted Mar 2013 - Light (5%) old oaked component plus lees stirring. Pale lemon yellow. Cooking apples on the nose – could almost be a Riesling. Very clean and light but still a bit simple. Still quite astringent.

Dandelion Vineyards Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling 2016
Dandelion Vineyards Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling 2016
Opens with invigorating, intense perfumes of lime blossom. The palate has a precise, clean fruit character of lemon and citrus, apricot, developing into rich lemon meringue tart-like flavour on the bone-dry finish.
