Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Light golden straw in colour. Expressive on the nose with lime, lemon curd and jasmine flower. The palate is defined by a long thread of complex fruits including mandarin, mango and lime zest. Balanced with natural sweetness and acidity this wine will age beautifully or can be enjoyed immediately."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"A gorgeous riesling; the fabulously fragrant bouquet shows yellow stone fruit, orange peel, mango and floral characters with hints of jasmine and lime zest. The palate is superbly concentrated and richly fruited, while remaining poised and elegant, delivering loads of delectable flavours combined with subtle sweetness and vibrant acidity. At its best: now to 2022. Certified organic."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow with slight golden tints, pale on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a taut and fine core of lime and lemonade fruit along with honied notes, white florals and saline elements entwined with minerals. Medium-dry to medium to taste, and light-medium bodied, the palate has deeply intense and penetrating flavours of sweetly ripe citrus fruits melded with exotic white florals, honied and musk notes and mineral detail. The mouthfeel is bright, lively and zesty, with fresh, lacy acidity, the wine flowing along a smooth, unctuous line with some fine, balancing textures. The wine carries to a long and sustained finish of stonefruits and honey. This is a beautifully intense, medium-dry Riesling with exotic citrus, floral and honied flavours on an unctuous, but refreshing palate. Serve with fresh fruit or mildly spicy Asian fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from three blocks, over 4 passes, yielding 15% botrytis, fermented to 12.0% alc. and 22.3 g/L RS, TA 8.43 g/L and pH 3.13. Certified AsureQuality organic."


94/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2017 Vintage) 
"Sweet perfume, honey and buttery toast, whiffs of ripe lemon, ripe apples. Juicy, slick and long in flavour, though unctuous there’s great freshness as it exits the palate. Lush, come hither feel executed exceptionally well. Enjoy."
