5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, September 2015 (2013 Vintage)
"Fruit from a 20 y.o. organic vineyard wild yeast fermented to 12.0% alc. and 20 g/L RS, with a low pH OF 2.95. This is about as funky as Kevin and Richard will do here. It is right on the edge for me too. Fantastic judgement and poise. Will consumers love this? The out-there sommeliers should. Bright straw-yellow. This is very tightly bound and has great intensity of white stonefruits, florals and minerals. There’s a touch of mouthwatering rainwater. It has Euro-funk reductive notes of new-wave dry German or Alsace Riesling. Medium-dry to dryish to taste, stonefruits, florals, apples, minerals and flinty flow with real linearity. Great line and drive and length. Crisp and firm, and this has length."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"The 2013 vintage was hand-picked from mature vines at Fairhall. Half of the juice was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old French oak casks, the rest with cultured yeasts in tanks; then the wine was all matured for four months in old barrels. Produced in a medium style (20 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has a fragrant, complex bouquet, mouthfilling body, rich, citrusy, appley, spicy, slightly peachy flavours, woven with fresh acidity, and excellent vigour and harmony."
Sue Courtney wineoftheweek.com (2013 Vintage)
"On first tasting you get the impression the wine is searingly dry but it fleshes out beautifully in the palate with a tropical and stonefruit sweetness and touches of grapefruit and mandarin. Complex and reasonably full-bodied for NZ riesling - it reminds me more of a European style and the wild yeast ferment adds a touch of pithy funk that really is quite endearing. Great sense of acidity with beautifully rounded edges. 20 gl rs."
