'An utterly beautiful riesling, the scented bouquet soars upwards from the glass, the flavour instantaneously filling the mouth with flavour-sweet (not sugar-sweet) lime and lemon fruit, and finishes with an oxymoron of quietly emphatic acidity. In a word, ravishing.'
98 Points, James Halliday
'A special cellar release wine. Luminous green-gold, the bouquet and palate an exercise in harmony. Meyer lemon and lime flavours lead the journey, hints of lightly browned toast in the background. The acidity is essential, but it is likewise simply part of the team.'
98 Points, James Halliday.
'Won three trophies at the Tasmanian Wine Show '17 thanks to its mix of extreme purity, intensity and length. Its balance and its aftertaste of lime, Granny Smith apple and lemon follows with the inevitability of day into night. It has limitless longevity, but I'll settle for 30 years.'
97 Points, James Halliday.
