5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2014 Vintage)
"2014 was a good botrytis year, which probably explains why this sweet and luscious wine is sweeter and more luscious that I remember. Peach, honey, mango, pineapple, liquorice and exotic spice flavours. Yum!"


5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, December 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues, pale edged. The nose is elegant and slender in proportion, but well concentrated with aromas of lime, lemon and tangerine fruit entwined with exotic flowers and a thread of marmalade, honey, any musky-talc botrytis. This has delicacy and finesse and is beautifully integrated. Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, gently luscious flavours of exotic citrus fruits and florals flow with honey, musk and talc botrytis along a very fine textured, lively line. This has excellent acidity and tension to match the unctuousness, and the wine carries with brightness and energy to a very long moderately sweet and luscious finisf of citrus fruits and musk. This is a beautifully elegant and harmoniously entwined late-pick Riesling with exotic citrus and musk flavours and excellent freshness. Serve as an aperitif and withbaked or fruit desserts over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit primarily from ungrafted vines over 25 y.o., with botrytis infection, cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 84 g/L RS, and TA 7.8 g/L."


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"From 'a great botrytis year', the 2014 vintage is a sweet but not super-sweet Waipara, North Canterbury wine. Bright, light lemon/green, with a honeyed, complex bouquet, it is finely poised, with fresh, citrusy, peachy, honeyed flavours, concentrated and long. Drink now or cellar."
