Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"This was an ideal grape growing season with a warm summer and a long lingering dry autumn. Low crop levels have given this wine extra concentration.

There is a diverse array of bright aromas and flavours, suggesting mandarins, limes and nectarines with an overlay of mango, lychees, guavas and passionfruit. It has good body and concentration in the mouth but remains lithe and elegant. There is a fine seam of minerality and crisp acidity that balance its off-dry finish and draw out its lingering flavours."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Rich, concentrated and flavoursome riesling in a medium-dry style with lime, honey, mango and apricot flavours. Less botrytis influence than usual, which means more focus on varietal flavours. Sweetness is balanced by fruity acidity and fine tannins. A powerful wine with character."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, lighter on the edge. The nose os fresh with softly presented aromas of lime and lemon fruit with subtle notes of tangerines, herbs and jasmine florals, unveiling suggestions of lime marmalade, honeysuckle and musk. The aromatics form a rounded, but concentrated core. Medium-dry to medium in taste and medium-bodied, the palate features softly rich and luscious flavours of lime, lemon and tangerines with yellow florals, lime marmalade, honey and subtle musk notes. The fruit richness is restrained in expression and balanced by a very fine phenolic thread and lacy, refreshing acidity providing linearity and flow. The wine carries smoothly to an elegant, long lingering finish. This is an elegantly rich and luscious medium Riesling with lime, lemon and marmalade flavours with jasmine floral, honeysuckle and musk detail, and a fine-textured, refreshing palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 5+ years. Late-picked fruit with 5% botrytis infection, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 26 g/L RS, TA 7.3 g/L."
94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2015 Vintage)​
"​Very aromatic bouquet with white blossoms, grapefruit and apple aromas, a touch of white spice and lime cordial note. On the palate – very fresh, lively – dancing on the palate with a spritz note; high acidity contrasts a moment of residual sugar before the return of citrus, apple and floral flavours, long finish; a lovely example. Drink now and through 2028."
Joelle Thomson (2015 Vintage)
"​This is the brand new outrageously good Riesling from New Zealand’s king of spatlese styles – Mat Donaldson, winemaker and eldest son of the Peg’ Bay winemaking dynasty in North Canterbury. Mat is a man on a mission to progressively produce Rieslings that taste ever so slightly drier in style and this is an elegant step in that direction. Concentrated lemon zest, ripe mandarins and fresh peach all combine in this great new wine."
