93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"A beautifully expressed riesling from the Alexandra district, the bouquet shows grapefruit, mandarin and apple pie characters with a hint of honey complexity. The palate is juicy and vibrant with subtle sweetness which is wonderfully countered by racy acidity, leading to an impressively long finish. A fabulous drink. At its best: now to 2022."
4 Stars & 18.0/20 Raymond Chan, July 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler on the rim. The nose is very fine in proportion showing fresh and pure fruit aromas of limes, white florals and mouthwatering wet-stone minerals. The aromatics grow to show a refined and delicately nuanced core. Off-dry to taste, the palate features thirst-quenching flavours of lime juice, white florals, apples and minerals, forming a well-proportioned core. The fruit has a degree of richness and lusciousness balanced by crisp, refreshing acidity, and carried by very fine-textures that provide linearity. The flavours carry to a long, lingering finish that blossoms in lime and florals. This is a mouthwatering, refined, off-dry Riesling with a rich core of limes, apples, florals and minerals, balanced by crisp acidity. Serve a an aperitif, and with Thai, Japanese or Vietnamese fare over the next 4-5 years. Clean fruit with no botrytis, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 13 g/L RS, TA 10 g/L and pH 2.99, the wine aged 4 months on lees with stirring. 70 dozen made."
4 1/2 Stars Dish Magazine, February 2017 (2015 Vintage)​
“This is such a cracker of a wine,” erupted Yvonne. “It just bursts with ripe apple, tangy mandarin, lime and a smorgasbord of citrus and it’s incredibly concentrated too.”  Cameron agreed, “It’s such a modern style, lush, crisp and beautifully balanced.” “Lithe” was another word that featured in the judges notes, while Colin felt this Central Otago stunner had legs to mature nicely also.
