94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Smells great. Loads going on here with flint, sweet citrus, green apple, mandarin scents. Gently sweet to taste, cool and fresh, light chalkiness to texture, exceptional length and superb balance between sweeter fruit and frisky acidity. Class act here. Excellent."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"A gorgeous riesling; the instantly appealing bouquet shows nectarine, lemon curd, lime sorbet and floral aromas. It is equally satisfying on the palate with excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, brilliantly supported by fine texture and perfectly pitched acidity, finishing persistent and mouth-watering. Style: Dry. At its best: now to 2025."


5 Stars & 18.5-/20 (92) Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is well-concentrated with fine, firm and penetrating aromas of lime fruit with tangerine notes along with honey and musk, unfolding white florals and fresh mineral elements. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is taut with finely concentrated flavours of limes entwined with honey and musk, along with white florals and thirst-quenching minerals. The mouthfeel is crisp and zesty, with bright, lively acidity, the wine flowing along a fine-textured line, carrying to a lingering finish of limes, florals and minerals. This is a taut, crisp and lively dryish Riesling with lime. Honey, musk and floral flavours and mouthwatering mineral notes on a fine-textured line. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Fruit predominantly from the ‘Om Santi’ and ‘Palliser’ sites, with some botrytis, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 8 g/L RS, TA 8.0 g/L and pH 3.00, the wine aged 3 months on lees."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Already enjoyable, but worth cellaring, the 2017 vintage is an off-dry style (7.1 grams/litre residual sugar). Light lemon/green, with a gently floral bouquet, it is a fresh, medium-bodied wine with strong lemon/lime flavours, balanced acidity and a lingering finish. Best drinking 2019+."
