Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"Aromas of limes, grapefruit, and citrus blossom. Steely acid from a cool growing season is balanced against refreshing natural sweetness and low alcohol. Pure and focused. Grapes were hand selected and harvested from our original plantings of Riesling. After whole bunch pressing, the free run juice was fermented in oak, and aged on light lees for four months before bottling."


5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, January 2018 (2012 Vintage)
"Moderately sweet riesling that’s perfectly balanced by taut acidity to give the wine exciting tension. Citrus, grapefruit, lime, chalky, mineral and subtle floral flavours. A very impressive wine that’s still remarkably fresh. Serve well-chilled as an aperitif."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage)
"The 2012 vintage is a sweetish style (65 grams/litre of residual sugar), estate-grown in the lower Waihopai Valley and barrel-fermented. Pale lemon/green, it is youthful and tightly structured, with strong lemon, apple and lime flavours, a minerally streak, firm acid spine and good complexity. A distinctive wine, it should be long-lived."
