Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Aromas of cut lemonade, green lime and spice. The nose is crunchy, pithy and fragrant. Palate: The palate is dominated by citrus and apple flesh. The wine is textural and pure."
93/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Fine and expressive bouquet of fresh green apple, lime flower and mandarin/tangerine, floral, mineral, inviting. On the palate - vibrant, fresh, lively and very crisp with plenty of acidity and a core of ripe citrus and tree fruit flavouts, mineral layer, some spice and while there is some residual sugar the wine finishes dry. Drink now and through 2024."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, January 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with some depth, pale edged. This has a very fine, elegantly proportioned nose with delicate aromas of lime fruit and white florals harmoniously interwoven with notes of rainwater and mouthwatering mineral elements at the core. Off-dry to taste and light=medium bodied, the palate features a firmly concentrated core of lime and lemon fruit with lifted white florals and hints of honeysuckle, unveiling thirst-quenching mineral notes. The wine is poised with brisk acidity enlivening and lifting the fruit aromatics, and the wine flows with good drive and linearity, leading to a long, lingering, fine-featured and textured, dryish finish. This is a finely concentrated, poised and refreshing off-dry Riesling with lime, lemon and white floral fruit, and mouthwatering mineral nuances. Serve as an aperitif, and with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit from ‘Kerseley Estate’, Dillons Point, from 24 y.o. vines, cool-fermented to 11.5% alc. and 7.6 g/L RS, T9.6 g/L and pH 3.0. 334 dozen made."
