James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; intense lime blossom and lime zest aromas lead into a superb palate with lime juice flavours a la the Mosel Valley lengthened by perfectly balanced acidity. Something quite special.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
The colour has barely changed over the first year and a half of its life. The wine is built around the framework provided by its Tasmanian acidity, the flavours poised between lime juice, green apple and mineral. A long future ahead.

Sourced from a number of small vineyards; touches of nettle and herb on the bouquet, with contrasting spicy notes running through the fine lime/ citrus fruit core; has excellent balance and glorious length. Trophy Tas Wine Show '10.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Very delicate and floral, scented with a slightly confectionery expression of apple, pear, lime and lemon with undertones of minerals and waxy white flowers. Long, fine and chalky, its tangy but marginally candied palate of lemony Life Saver-like fruit finishes crisp and focused.

A clean but restrained bouquet, then leaps into life on the palate, with delicate but beautifully focused lime and passionfruit flavours, tied by a bow of perfect acidity.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
This scintillating Tasmanian riesling has intensity and verve, super-pure citrus and mineral aromas, steely restraint too; very intense. In the mouth it's built around a solid spine of brisk acidity, driving citrus and stone fruit flavours long and deep, finishing flinty with zesty punch.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Uncomplicated but unusually tropical, this long, racy and luscious young riesling delivers a pristine spread of passionfruit, guava, lychee and tinned fruit flavours which it wraps up with a clean, racy acidity. Very distinctive, individual and very hard to predict a future for. Who cares? It's delicious now.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Delicate, fresh and crystal clean; a well-balanced palate with gentle citrus offset by nice minerally notes. Has considerable potential for development.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Ultimate manifestation of the vintage, with ultra-ripe and sweet tropical fruit, partially balanced by lime-tingle acidity.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light yellow-green; the firm bouquet is at the minerally end of the spectrum, rather than the fruity end, with hints of lemon; the lively palate has good length and mouthfeel, sustained by typical Tasmanian acidity. It is sourced from the Pipers River region and will, of course, repay cellaring. Nonetheless, the line pricing with the other wines is interesting.
