Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Hunter's Riesling was made with fruit sourced from Rapaura and the Brancott sub regions of Marlborough. A floral nose give way to a focused palate. The wine is made in a dry style and has excellent cellering potential."

5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hue, lighter edged. The nose is very elegant with initially delicate and subtle aromas of lime fruit with floral and thirst-quenching mineral nuances. This is refined in expression, and gently blossoms with aeration. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a well-proportioned, concentrated core of lime and lemon fruit with white florals, hints of honeysuckle and mouthwatering mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line of fruit extract and subtle phenolics. The wine carries to a long and sustained finish of citrus fruits and florals. This is an elegant and refined dry Riesling with concentrated lime and lemon flavours and mouthwatering mineral notes. Serve as an aperitif, and with Thai, Vietnamese or Japanese cuisine over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from Rapaura and Brancott, cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 7.3 g/L RS, TA 9.3 g/L and pH 2.88."

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Youthful and delicate, the bouquet shows red apple, lemon/lime peel and white floral notes with a hint of flinty complexity. The palate is finely textured and focused, and offers whispering sweetness and brisk acidity, leading to a persistent linear finish. The wine displays lovely poise and refinement. At its best: now to 2024."
