Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Floral, spice, rose, orange blossom and apricot aromas. Rich, round and sweet on the palate with complex, ripe citrus flavours. Perfectly balanced acidity reigns in the residual sugar. The mid-harvest rains in the Waitaki brought with them a classic botrytis infection, most notably and desirably in the Riesling. As they say, ‘every cloud has it’s silver lining’: this wine is it."
Vino Fino Tasting, June 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Mid harvest rain during the 2014 vintage in the Waitaki saw botrytis affect the Riesling so this is a different style again. Golden in colour and taste. Classic botrytis characters add marmalade and honey flavours to the citrus, floral fruit flavours. Luscious at 123gms and 9.1%, but also well balanced by the acidity. This would be a perfect winter aperitif wine. Grab some flavoursome creamy blue cheese and enjoy life."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"The highly refined 2014 vintage is light-bodied (9 per cent alcohol), with a gently honeyed bouquet. Delicious from the start, it has rich, citrusy flavours, sweet and crisp, with a lovely interplay of fruit and botrytis, a hint of sherbet, and a long, honeyed finish."
