"Floral and open knit…Lovely honeyed note, and lots of vivid citrus fruit – beautifully fresh and precise."

James Halliday 95 Points!


"Rich and layered, with a mix of Rose's lime and Meyer lemon fruit flavours. That the balance of flavours and length are excellent is no surprise given the alcohol, pH and titratable acidity are all text book. Hard work in the vineyard has paid off handsomely."


- James Halliday, Wine Companion

"Stephen Henschke reports that this is the finest vintage since 2002 and it was a very late season which is the reason why this wine has so much class and complexity. The nose is stunning and you don’t need to lean in to the glass to be enraptured by its perfume. Vividly citrusy with jasmine and linden notes, the palate is thrillingly vivacious. Super-long and persistent, this is everything that I love about Eden Valley Riesling in one glass. It will be a very long-lived wine as the acidity is incredible but it already looks epic."

"Intensity is right up there. This explodes with pure riesling flavour. Lime, green apple, bath salts and lime leaves…florals too. It is 100% gorgeous right now. It extends electrically through the finish. It will take age as a certainty."
