Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Spicy aromas of black and white pepper abound with a heady perfume of orange blossom, mandarin skin essence, grapefruit and melon with hints of apricot kernels. The palate is rich and full yet with an elegance and purity at the same time; this is portrayed by the ripe flavours of passionfruit, orange and honey which is complimented by white pepper and lime zest. The palate is rich and long yet perfectly balanced by the acid leaving ones mouth cleansed and refreshed, making another glass irresistible."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"This is exciting and invigorating; the gorgeous bouquet shows lemon curd, lime sorbet, orange peel and subtle honey notes, leading to a succulent palate that is packed with delicious fruit flavours, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and refreshing acidity. The wine is generous and flavoursome, while remaining firmly structured and stylish. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2024."


18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, October 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"The captivating label is one thing, the wine inside this bottle makes even more of a powerful statement about the greatness of the Waipara Valley in North Canterbury and the Riesling grape variety's enjoyment of its hot summers and long autumns. Talented winemaker Lynnette Hudson has captures the power of ripe Riesling in this full-bodied, dry, beautiful expression."


91/100 Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, February 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"In the cool 2014 vintage, the 2014 Riesling wasn't harvested until May 1. The wine shows aromas of honey and a bit of petrol, plus Golden Delicious apple, stone fruit and lime flavours. It's medium to full-bodied and off-dry in style (12 grams per litre residual sugar), with a finish that's long, rich and spicy. Drink 2018-2023."


16.5/20 Jancis Robinson MW, October 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Very arresting labels! Looks very dense. Really full and chock-full of flavour. The odd German might argue this is not refined enough but it's certainly attention grabbing and brilliantly distinctive in an NZ context. Off dry. Herbal stew. Tastes sponti, biodynamic and very long. A good place to be! Aggressively different."
