Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Captures you by stealth; the bouquet is reticent, the fore-palate following suit for a split second before expanding dramatically on the way through to the back-palate, where a whirlpool of flavours explodes, the intensity of the lime juice and acidity almost shocking.

Very fine, elegant and tightly focused, with a scent of white flowers, sliced apple and lime juice backed by nuances of fresh pear, chalk and mineral. It?s long and limey, with a pure, crystalline expression of crunchy citrus and apple-like fruit extending long towards a savoury finish of lemony acids underpinned by a lick of wet slate.

Vibrant pale green; the bouquet at an early stage shows mineral complexity, offset by citrus blossom and some reductive notes; the palate reveals a wine built for the long haul, with laser-like acidity, and extraordinarily tightly wound fruit that will go the distance of the structure. Will surely reward cellaring.

Taking its first baby steps, this remarkable wine will develop into a more pungent, mineral riesling of texture and sensuality. Its heady but delicate, perfume of rose petals and lavender reveals earthy, mineral undertones, while its long, austere palate is an exercise in length and steety focus. Pristine, fresh citrus fruit and minerals overlie a powdery texture, finishing with crunchy acids and a lingering note of lemon sherbet.

I may be heading into the realm of riesling geek, but this has goosebump-level excitement. Very few Australian rieslings can get this level of ripeness and deliver such composure - it's a double act usually reserved for northern hemisphere. Scintillating mineral spark on the nose, smells of lemon sorbet, some nectarine and citrus also in the mix, as well as crushed minerals. The palate packs a wealth of flavour and quite sturdy texture, as well as bracing, tingly acid, more in the citrus and mineral spectrum. A high-tensile structure and a long, crisp, driving finish.

The track record of this wine leaves no doubt it will develop slowly but superbly; it is perfectly balanced and has extreme length, with lime and apple flavours building to a crescendo on the finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
A pristine expression of what this vineyard delivers, out rather more open and juicy than previous vintages. Its; intense lime juice aromas are backed by heady, musky scents of white flowers, talcum powder and nuances of wet slate. Its succulent presence of citrus and pear flavour! is supported by a fine chalkiness and mineral notes, finishing long and tangy with a lingering slatey note.

An aromatic floral blossom bouquet leads into a beautiful palate, with fine lime, lemon and passionfruit flavours, tied off by perfect acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Simply a brilliant combination of intense, highly perfumed lime, apple and pear-like fruit with a classically chalky undercarriage of schisty phenolics which is tightly bound by a bracing cut of steely acids. Scented with blossom and minerals, it's long and concentrated, finishing with balance, focus and great persistence. Modern riesling as it should be!

Slightly awkward and gangly In its youth, this tightly defined, long and schisty young riesling will settle down into a wine of superb definition and focus. Its lightly spicy and musky aromas of apple and pear, lemon and lime reveal undertones of minerals and lanolin .Long, dry and succulent, its juicy palate of pristine fruit is punctuated by a cut of crunchy acids that will help to ensure its considerable cellaring potential.

Very pale straw-green; a wonderfully delicate, pure, flowery bouquet, followed by an intense, yet feather-light, array of bright and crisp flavours.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
A very taut, fine and minerally riesling with a deep citrusy, perfume and a powerfully concentrated palate. Scented with green apples, lime and minerals, remarkably long and vibrant palate marries pristine, crystalline fruit with chalky phenolics and steely, schisty acids. Needing time to show its best It's like a tightly coiled spring, waiting to explode.

Intense, fragrant and flowery aromas announce a brilliantly poised and focused wine with long citrus and mineral flavours. Shines like a diamond. Exceptional value.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
A floral aroma of stone fruit, lime and lemon blossom overlies nuances of wet slate, while the long, sculpted and powdery palate delivers penetrative lime juice and lemon rind flavours before an austere finish of steely acidity. A wonderful wine, with a suggestion of the best from modern Austria.

The intensely fragrant bouquet is at once steely yet flowery; the fine lime and mineral flavours build progressively through a gloriously long palate.
