Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This Riesling ‘M’ is designed from the “vineyard-in” in a medium-dry style and is dangerously drinkable. Lifted aromas of mandarin, pink grapefruit, and white peach follow onto vibrant, ripe flavours of the same with juicy lime with underlying slatey mineral notes. This wine is fine and soft with excellent fruit weight and concentration to counterbalance the mouth-watering acidity.

We had always been inspired by the great wines of the Mosel and when tasting the fruit from this block at Te Whare Ra, we thought that the flavour profile and acid balance, lent itself well to this medium-dry style of Riesling. We love the knife edge of tension in this style of wine – the perfect balance between the initial sweetness of the fruit and the lingering, chalky acidity."

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"This is an object of desire. Irresistible, charming and satisfying, the wine offers elegantly fragrant aromas of fresh apple, lemon peel, jasmine and white nectarine, leading to a finely textured palate that delivers mouth-watering fruit purity and subtle sweetness, brilliantly structured by bright acidity, finishing persistent and delicious. At its best: now to 2027. Certified organic."

92/100 Jamie Goode, December 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Planted in 2004. pH 2.85, TA 9 g/l, sugar 27 g/litre, 9.5% alcohol. Lovely fresh style with bright lemony acidity and some delicious rounded mandarin characters. Juicy with just a hint of sweetness. Very stylish."
