5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Medium in style but there is nothing middle of the road about this beauty. Pristine aromas of lemon curd, lime zest, white flowers and stone fruit lead to a superbly concentrated yet light and delicate palate that is linear and flowing. The wine offers elegant sweetness which is perfectly countered by mouth-watering acidity, making the wine beautifully balanced and attractive. Grapes were hand picked from their home vineyard in Renwick. At its best: now to 2028."
5 Stars & 19.0/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is soft with delicate and beautifully fresh core of white florals and lime fruit melded with subtle notes of honey, unfolding exotic mandarin and jasmine notes along with hints of minerals. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, the palate features elegantly rich and succulently sweet flavours of limes and mandarins entwined with white and jasmine florals and a gentle layering of honey. The fruit and sweetness is underlined by very fine, smooth-flowing textures, and the mouthfeel enlivened by lacy acidity. This combines succulence and delicacy. The wine carries with excellent linearity to a long, finely concentrated finish of citrus fruit, florals and honey. This is an elegant, succulently rich medium Riesling with citrus and exotic floral flavours and honey notes on a smooth linear and long palate. Serve as an aperitif, or with Thai. Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 5+ years. Hand-picked and sorted fruit from the ‘Home’ block, given some skin contact and cool-fermented in tank to 9.5% alc. and 30 g/L RS, TA 9.0 g/L and pH 2.9. Certified BioGro organic. 233 cases made."
94/100 James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
"This is a superb wine that has a succulent draw on the palate and superbly ripe fruit. It offers the perfect sweetness balance and is really a benchmark for the style. Smells of white peaches and white nectarines with some alluring floral perfumes. The palate's focussed on guava and limes and it's so soft and fleshy. A white that really sings all the way till its super-elegant, pure and resolved finish. Drink now."
