"Tight in perfume, shows stoney and slate-like with a hint of floral character and a squeeze of lime. Surprising concentration in palate, a slim arrow of richness given chalky textural edges. Citrus and lick of ripe stone fruit show, but the essence is an energetic, lengthy, coiled white wine of refreshment and interest. Should cellar superbly, but is really delicious in its current guise."
Mike Bennie, March 2014
"Straw-like aromas and a posy of dried wildflowers. The palate is rich and full, a generously flavoured riesling. It's powerful and ample, but not especially subtle within the riesling context, a consequence of fully ripe grapes. It's a delicious wine regardless."
Huon Hooke, The Gourmet Traveller Wine Guide 2015.
"Perfumed with white stone fruit, citrus blossom and underlying spice, the nose entices you to a concentrated, elegantly textural palate. Seamlessly integrated fruit and chalky acidity help to create an amalgam of layered complexity, finesse and excellent persistence. We believe this wine emulates our very best vintages and hold high expectations for its great cellaring potential."
