Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; the bouquet has nuances of citrus, herb and spice; the palate is a different matter, with a vibrant shaft of lime and lemon buttressed by flinty acidity on the lingering finish and aftertaste.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, using O only free-run juice; the fragrant blossom-filled bouquet foretells the wonderfully intense and juicy palate, full of lime and lemon flavours before moving through to a long, dry finish. What more can you ask for?

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; exceptional clarity, purity and intensity, and a long and exciting life ahead; lime, apple and pronounced mineral characters coalesce on the palate and aftertaste, leaving the mouth fresh.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Pale quartz; still an infant, but you can easily see its breeding and length; superfine lime/citrus fruit and a touch of apple drive the long palate and lingering finish. Great future.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Fragrant and flowery, but a little more complex than the varietal; while bone dry, has both depth and length with a strong substrate of minerally acidity. Deserves five years minimum to open up and reveal all it has to offer.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
More powerful and concentrated than the Great Southern Riesling; curiously, despite the pricing and selection, and despite the greater power, I prefer the Great Southern.
