Classic release. Takes life in its stride, feeling thoroughly unforced from go to whoa, and yet its combination of prettiness, softness, and bursting flavour places it straight in tip top territory. Blossomy citrus, chalk, fennel and steel notes convey the message, but its real class is in the wiring, the surge, the electricity it generates. Drink to 2030. 97 points, James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
Reminiscent of some of the Polish Hills of yesteryear, this tightly focused and deeply layered riesling reveals a piercingly fragrant bouquet of lime juice, lavender, white peach, pear and apple underpinned by suggestions of chalk dust and tropical fruit. It’s mouth-wateringly flavoured with layers of fruit and chalkiness, coating the palate towards its trim, taut and almost bone-dry finish of searingly fresh, nervy citrusy acids. Wonderfully balanced and complete – a true long-term style of purity and texture. 97 points, Jeremy Oliver, jeremyoliver.com
Deep and intense: concentrated pear fruit. Fruit fruit fruit, in fact; waiting to unwind in the years to come. So powerful, chewy and deep on the tongue too. Super long and mouth-sucking. Needs five years to realise its full potential.
95-96 points, Tim White, AFR Weekend.
Bobby dazzler of a wine. Soft and easy-going but strung with tense flavour from the back palate onwards. The finish is a sheer burst of impressive flavour, without being too cutting. It’s not a challenging wine. It’s a pristine, blossomy, chalky one. Fennel notes add something extra. Classic. 96 points, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au
