Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"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."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Estate-grown in The Elms Vineyard, this gently sweet style has deep flavours woven with fresh acidity. It offers more drink-young appeal than its Dry Riesling stablemate, but invites long-term cellaring. Hand-picked and tank-fermented with indigenous yeasts, it is bottled with a high level of residual sugar (63 grams/litre in 2016). The 2016 vintage is bright, light lemon/green. A Mosel-like wine, it is light (9.5 per cent alcohol), with vibrant lemon/lime flavours, a hint of sherbet, and lovely depth, balance and freshness. Delicious from the start, it's a drink-now or cellaring proposition."
91/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front (2016 Vintage)
"Swoosh! Slips and slides, but before we get to that, wafts of sweet fruit, florals, honey, green apple, flint in bouquet. Taste it – slippery, just, cool green apple acidity, kiss of honey, sweet lemon, candied citrus. Glides to a lightly chalky finish. Doesn’t quite drill complexity, and probably best in youth, sweetness not quite met by acidity, but pretty bloody good drinking."
