Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Our Botrytised Riesling is drawn from three vineyards located within the Wairau Valley. Two are on geologically young, stoney, free-draining gravels close to the river; producing intense citrus aromas and pristine crisp acidity. The third, within the Brancott Valley, lies on geologically older soils, crushed stones with a portion of clay which gives the fruit flavours of stone fruit and Asian spice, softer acidity and tremendous mouth texture. Harvest occurs 4-8 weeks after normal physiological ripeness and the varying degree of botrytised berries per bunch, usually around 40-90%. All fruit is hand selected, slowly pressed, cool fermented, cold settled, blended, fined and filtered prior to bottling.

It’s got the backbone of a great Riesling, glorious gold glint, orange marmalade, apricot and toffee aromas, sweet opulent palate and a clean lingering finish – perfection!. Full unctuous mouthfeel, perfectly balanced with crisp, fresh acidity. 225g/l RS"


NZIWS 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Tantalising lime blossom and honeysuckle aromas and decadently concentrated in the beautifully refined palate that despite the luscious honey, apricot and tropical fruit sweetness leaves a light, lingering impression. – Delicious."


4 ½ Stars, Top 5 & Best Buy, Cuisine Sweet Wine Tasting 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"A wonderfully generous wine with some colourful green elements. Salted caramel and toffee flavours layer over marmalade fruits giving the wine a delightful richness and fruit weight."

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Already delicious, the 2016 vintage is bright, light lemon/green, with moderate alcohol (10.5 per cent) and rich peach, apricot and honey flavours, sweet (147 grams/litre of residual sugar), crisp and concentrated."


Very Good to Excellent, Mark Henderson, Otago Daily Times (2016 Vintage)
"Tropical fruit salad and canned pineapple lead the nose, something a little wild and funky in the background. Lush mouthfeel, yet not pronounced sweetness with savoury elements and lemony citrus providing a foil to the sweeter pineapple notes. Butterscotch and botrytis add interest to the attractive, slightly wild finish."
