Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Green apple and lemon myrtle bouquet, with an appealing and linear palate; a very good example of the style (off-dry Riesling) with a mineral backbone, and some exciting possibilities for food and wine matching.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; a succulent wine, citrus fruits with a tropical edge enhanced by some residual sweetness. No need for patience, although will cellar well. Riesling.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Lightly sweet, with regional characters of lemon, flint and a touch of stone fruit; soft and fleshy, with true focus. Riesling

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Quite ripe, with tropical elements and a little slate in the background; the sweetness is well balanced by the acid and works well.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Estery, perfumed tropical nose and fresh, zippy palate with lots of flavour from beginning to end.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; a fine, delicate but clear bouquet; springs into life on the palate with rich tropical/citrus fruit, the touch of sweetness making it a now or later proposition. Riesling.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Rich, late-picked style; no botrytis, simply tropical/pineapple fruit. Made for a particular market sector.

Ray Jordan (2003 Vintage) says
Here is a delightful summer drink. It's a slightly sweet Riesling which is perfectly balanced. The palate has that little residual sugar but the fine delicate acid persists to provide clean refreshing palate. Tops with fresh fruit or spicy Asian.
