Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​This was an ideal grape growing season with a warm summer and a long lingering dry autumn. Although purposely harvested late in the season with noble botrytis it was fermented to produce a dry style of riesling. There are plentiful aromas and flavours that are reminiscent of citrus fruits, honeydew melon, pawpaw and tropical spices. It expands on the palate to become broad shouldered, mouth filling and rich but retains a spine of sinuous acidity and minerality that help draw out a lingering hint of freshly crushed root ginger."
96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Intense and precise aromas of Riesling with an apricot, honeysuckle and citrus bouquet. The under currant of minerality is obvious with stone/silt/wet chalk-like combination. On the palate – off-dry with an immediate sweetness which disappears quickly as the wine becomes dry; plenty of texture and palate engagement with high acidity, some phenolic action throughout the palate and flavours of lemon zest, apple and spicy honeysuckle. Fabulous balance and length. Enjoy now and through 2030+."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler on the edge. The nose is elegant in proportion with rich and concentrated, well-packed aromas of ripe citrus fruits along with honey, marmalade and musk, unfolding exotic floral elements. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated, dense heart packed with harmoniously integrated flavours of ripe citrus fruits, marmalade, honeysuckle and musk. This has real body and presence, and the palate has a rounded and gently unctuous mouthfeel. The acidity is ripe and soft, providing underlying energy and drive, and the wine carries to a long, lingering finish of honey, citrus fruits and musk. This is a full and concentrated dry Riesling with ripe citrus fruits, honey, musk and marmalade botrytis flavours on a rounded, unctuous palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked bunches with at least 30% noble botrytis, cool-fermented in tank to 13.6% alc. and 7.2 g/L RS, TA 6.3 g/L."
