The wine has intense aromas and flavours of ripe peaches, nectarines and apricots. Behind these lie hints of tropical fruits, such as pineapples, guavas and lychees. It has a core of citrus fruit characters with impressions of lemons, limes and grape-fruit, that flow through the palate and linger as a tingling minerality, perfectly balancing its lusciously, honeyed structure.
95/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2014 Vintage)
"Rich, intense, honeyed tropical fruits, white sugar and liquid butterscotch thoughts. On the palate - lush, exotic, creamy, intense and powerfully sweet; plenty of acidity brings balance. A delicious wine that's frankly dessert in a glass, but would also suit uber sweet desserts or powerfully spice Asian dishes."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Grown at Waipara, in North Canterbury, this beauty is from hand-selected, botrytised bunches and berries, harvested late in the season in multiple passes through the vineyard. The 2014 vintage is light gold, with beautifully intense, apricot/honey aromas and flavours. Notably concentrated, it has marmalade-like notes and a lush, super-rich finish."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, May 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Deep, light golden-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly voluminous with softly concentrated and intense aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits harmoniously intermixed with marmalade and honey, along with lifted exotic floral and volatile elements. This is beautifully complex and layered. Very sweet and decadent to taste and light-medium bodied, lusciously rich flavours of ripe, exotic tropical fruits and citrus fruits are melded with honey, marmalade, crystallised fruits and a little toffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and near unctuous in texture with very fine textures lending a degree of balancing dryness. The acidity is soft, and the rounded and concentrated flavours carry to a softly rich, long finish of honey and marmalade. This is a rich and luscious botrytis-affected sweet Riesling with layers of exotic fruits, marmalade and lifted florals, and a soft, near unctuous mouthfeel. Match with fruit and baked desserts and with crème caramel over the next 5+ years. Hand-picked fruit from old, ungrafted Riesling vines, selected over multiple passes for botrytis infection and fermented to 11.0% alc. and 163 g/L RS, and TA 8.3 g/L. (375 ml)"
