Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale quartz; hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed and cold-fermented clear juice; a floral citrus blossom bouquet leads into a beautifully articulated palate with citrus, apple and acidity all woven together on the very long palate.

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
Long, fresh and finely textured, with purity of fruit and a promise of longevity. Scented with white flowers, white peach, pear and apple with undertones of lime juice and a light chalkiness, it's finely shaped and streamlined. Its pristine, mouthfilling fruit is supported by a fine dusty spine and extends long towards a tangy finish of lime juice acids.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Seemingly rather hard-edged, but offering some pleasing forward fruit and a delicate fragrance of white flowers, pear and apple. Long and juicy, but very skinsy and textured, it's steely and austere, with a mineral and rather savoury finish that dries out, becoming rather raw, hard and extracted. Could be related to the smokiness of the season.

Light green-straw; an unusual wine with a quiet bouquet and entry to the mouth, then accelerates hard through to a lime sherbet finish with lingering acidity; draws you back again to the wine.
Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010
Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Lifted by a musky and slightly confectionery perfume of rose oil and spice, this juicy, round and slightly sweet riesling delivers a textured, rather skinsy palate whose pear, apple, lemon and lime flavours are supported by talcum-like undertones and finished with lively, citrusy acids. It just lacks the freshness and brightness for a higher rating.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Delicate lemon and apple blossom aromas; a pleasing palate, though not particularly intense.
Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Fresh aromas of apple, pear and tropical fruits precede a juicy palate that becomes long, tight and slightly chalky. Its lingering expression of tangy fruit finishes clean and refreshing, with a light sweetness similar to the German halbtrocken style. Should flesh out and develop well.
