Rob Geddes MW (2012 Vintage) says
A wine writer or any taster for that matter can go wild sniffing this, rose, musk, lychee, apple, florals, blonde toffee, fresh cut tobacco and black tea. The medium bodied palate starts apple and orange citrus with floral edges with creamy mid palate, exotic fruit complexity and layered pithy mouth watering finish that suits food with a subtle display of apple, mandarin, white stone fruit, papaya and creamy lees.

A blend of 85% riesling and small amounts of gewurztraminer, chardonnay and pinot gris grown on a steep slope near Mt Lofty in the Adelaide Hills; whole bunch-pressed and 100% barrel-fermented in used French oak barriques; it remained on yeast lees for 10 months and was filtered before bottling. Takes the riesling story to another dimension, and a great outcome for left-field vineyard planting and winemaking.

This Adelaide Hills white is blended using riesling (36%), chardonnay (30%), gewurztraminer (21%) and pinot grigio (13%), all sourced from a single steeply sloped vineyard at Mount Lofty. It's reminiscent of some of the northern Italian blended whites, showing richness and intensity with handy balance and a crisp appeal. Lychees, rosewater and peachy stone fruits on the nose, the palate also adds some pears, and gently savoury cashew-nut complexity to close.

Very pretty stone fruit aromas rich texture and fine acid. A generous wine with a lovely spicy apple and citrus fruit generosity.

The original fruit salad and puppy dogs' tails wine, but is remarkably fresh and tangy, citrus characters emerging on top of a pile of other flavours. Pinot Gris/Chardonnay/Riesling/Gewurztraminer.

Sweet fruit aromas, richly textured, yet fine acids lurk in the finish. A subtle wine with a lovely spicy apple and citrus fruit generosity.

A blend of Pinot Gris/Chardonnay/Riesling/ Gewurztraminer, resulting in a wine that is all about texture; light and bright on the palate, there is a slippery nature to the finish that is easy and non-challenging.

An amalgam of pinot grigio, chardonnay, riesling and gewurztraminer, this smells of tangelo and ripe mandarin, with nutty savoury French oak-derived complexity - quite striking. The palate follows suit, with tangelo and grilled-cashew flavour - quite pithy and concentrated.
