Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Lemon and apple blossom bouquet, with a distinctly regional mineral complexity to the fruit; the palate is disarmingly generous, showing plenty of flesh and cleansing acidity; there is a savoury edge to the finish that leaves the palate fresh, linear and

Very fine, delicate riesling; tight in youth with ripe fresh pineapple fruit and a fine flinty acidity and delicate lean fruit which starts to show a minerally waxy edge with time.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Fresh aromas of lime juice, guava and apple are backed by musky scents of white flowers and white peach, with a spicy hint of lemon sherbet. Long and lean, its tangy presence of slightly angular citrusy flavour overlies a fine chalkiness, finishing long and fractionally sweet with bathpowdery undertones and lemony acids.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
A very funky, spicy and savoury riesling which takes time to unfold its perfume of white flowers, apple, pear, stonefruit and cloves. It's round and generous, with some grippy underlying texture, and extends to its savoury and slightly meaty finish with a restrained expression of apples and nectarines, finishing very dry with assertive acidity.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Poised and quite polished lemon fruit with a little exotic character, showing more ripeness than usual; quite rich on entry, the palate tightens toward the finish, with a textured and minerally finish

Ripe and full of exotic fruits; quite minerally and with good texture; long and focused finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Delightfully textured and steely, this Eden Valley look-alike has a perfumed, almost tropical bouquet of lime, lemon candy, guava and musky bath powder. Its long, chalky palate delivers vibrant citrusy flavour, with undertones of stonefruit and sherbet, finishing racy, taut and trim.

Rather closed, with more mineral than fruit, but changes radically on the palate, with generous, mouthfilling sweet citrus fruit, and a lingering, dry finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
An Alsatian styled riesling whose pungent, almost oily and meaty bouquet of musky, citrus blossom and stonefruit aromas precede a rich, sumptuous and marginally sweet palate. A juicy, almost crunchy expression of citrus fruit overlies a finegrained chalky spine, finishing savoury and fractionally short, with tangy mineral influences.

Apple blossom and mineral aromas; a powerful, long palate with spice, apple and lime; fractionally heavy finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Juicy and generous, this tight and mineral riesling has a zesty perfume of lemon, apple and pear and a penetrative, citrusy palate finishing with powdery, slate-like undertones and a lively cut of refreshing acids. It easily has the brightness of fruit to carry its reductive complexity.

Tight, clean, focused mineral and lime; quite powerful, particularly on the back palate and finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Fragrant, slightly funky and reductive aromas with floral undertones of lime juice and minerals. Its long and vibrant palate culminates in a savoury, wild and reductive finish of earthy, leesy complexity. It might not cellar for a long time, but it is indeed a delightfully idiosyncratic and musky floral riesling with lingering lime and mineral qualities.
