5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"A magnificent dry riesling, the tantalising bouquet shows lemon pith, white floral, apple and subtle flinty characters. The palate is linear and focused, and flows seamlessly to an extremely long finish. The wine offers exquisite texture and refined mouthfeel with a firm structure. Perfectly proportioned and destined to evolve gracefully. At its best: 2018 to 2028. Certified organic."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Brilliant pale straw colour with slight green hues, very pale edged. The nose is very elegant and refined with very good depth and intensity of pure lime fruit entwined with white florals a a subtle layering of thirst-quenching savoury minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is taut and tightly concentrated with flavours of lime fruit, white florals and savoury minerals. The mouthfeel is thirst-quenchingly dry with crisp, racy acidity, and the wine has fine fruit extract providing a refined line. Flavours of apples emerge and carry with the limes and minerals to a long, elegantly proportioned finish. This is a refined, taut, mouthwatering dry Riesling with lime, floral, apple and savoury mineral flavours and fine fruit extraction. Serve as an aperitif and with shellfish over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the TWR ‘Home Block’, vines planted in 1979, hand-picked and hand-sorted, a portion WBP, and fermented in stainless-steel to 12.4% alc., 3.3 g/L RS, TA 6.8 g/L and pH 3.01. Certified BioGro organic. 781 cases made."
93/100 Jamie Goode, December 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Planted in 1979, so these are oldest vines in Marlborough. ‘At that stage hardly anyone planted on rootstock,’ says Anna Flowerday, ‘but here they did, and this has been our benefit.’ Lovely, linear, dry wine where the acid is really nicely integrated. It’s bone dry but there’s some fresh, with pure citrus fruit and a hint of honey. Lovely, intricate finish."
