"Bright light-mid yellow-green hue, and a refined, restrained lime/lemon aroma. The palate is rich and juicy at the same time as it's refined and delicate. There is power here, concentration and persistence: it's a stunning balancing act of rich, ripe fruit with refinement. Variations on the theme of lemon! This is a magnificent riesling." - Huon Hooke

"Pound for pound one of the greatest wines in Australia, by my reckoning, value and quality. Again, great wine here.

It’s an inky, dense release with impressive flavour spectrum and sense of complexity. Indeed, this release is perhaps less about precision and velocity and more about quiet opulence, layers of fruit character ranging from citrus to apples to stone fruits with spice, herbal detail and strong, talc and chalk-like minerally charm (and texture!) in the mix. So much going on. A wine to really sit back and contemplate, while washing over the senses with a general freshness." - Wine Front

"The 'old' vines, planted in '75 and '77, hit their straps years ago. Today, this is a wine of provenance. Yet a cool region is not immune to hot/drier weather and this already has some forward toasty, lime marmalade flavours and could advance the ageing process. It is drinking beautifully now, as there's certainly the acid backbone keeping this afloat." - Wine Companion
