WINESTATE (2012 Vintage) says
An elegant, candied lime nose and dry aperitif palate, with crisp acid flavours. A very stylish quaffer.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; hand-picked from estate-grown vines up to 85 years old, some of the oldest, if not the oldest, in the Clare Valley; a delicate wine yet to flex its muscles, but will do so over the next 2-3 years.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Lean, austere riesling with simple citrus fruit and mouth-watering acidity. Needs time.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; a sturdy and powerful wine in the mainstream of traditional Clare Valley style, with citrus and mineral fruit; needs a few years to open up.

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Great colour, with delicate green hues. _This is a classic Clare riesling,î noted one judge. Very stylish nose and beautifully rich, fresh palate with a crisp, elegant finish.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Ripe apple, citrus and mineral aromas; a well-balanced, relatively light-bodied, palate.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Citrus nose showing some bottle development. Soft and juicy in the mouth. Good commercial style.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Bright green-yellow; intense flavours, with sweet citrus on the mid-palate, then a long finish with no obvious residual sugar. Part from a block planted in 1926.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Clean, generous citrus/lime/tropical fruit mix; good balance.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; clean, crisp lime and mineral bouquet aromas are followed by a palate with plenty of flavour and focus, with attractively ripe fruit running through to a long finish.
