Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"A vivacious Riesling with succulent citrus blossom, alluring lime and sweet mandarin with a delightfully crisp, refreshing off-dry finish.
This Riesling brings together outstanding fruit from two of New Zealand’s preeminent Riesling areas – Marlborough & Waipara. The fruit selected from Marlborough adds a textural element, richness, citrus flavours and ageability to the wine. Waipara gives us our fabulous floral aromatics."
4 Stars & Best Buy, Cuisine Riesling Tasting, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"The creamy texture of this wine slows things down to a dignified pace. The nose is citrusy; in the mouth stonefruit flavours hold sway. There’s plenty of sweetness, but it doesn’t want for poise or freshness thanks to its fruit weight and well-judged acidity."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, January 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"This bright lemon gold coloured wine is beautifully perfumed with honeysuckle and sweet citrus. It's one of those juicy and deliciously refreshing lower alcohol, Mosel-inspired styles with moderate sweetness offset by quenching apple-like acidity and a lingering zesty zing."
91/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, April 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"A blend of riesling from Marlborough and Waipara. Rich, luscious and perfectly balanced wine with appealing sweet-and-sour tension. Citrus, grapefruit and lime with apricot and a hint of peach. Terrific value at this price."
90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Ripe, very fragrant and alluring bouquet with orange and green mandarin and white peach; quite floral too. Off-dry with noticeable sweetness followed by flavours that reflect the nose - with crunchy green apple, white flowers and sweet lemon flavours. Plenty of acidity and balanced, quite long finish. Low alcohol, high acidity - Drink now and through 2024."
