Winemaker's Notes

The wine's bouquet and flavour suggests citrus fruit, especially limes, along with peaches, nectarines, lychees, pineapple and tropical spices. There is a core of minerality and tangy acidity, which flows through the palate, helping to draw out the wine's length and balance its off-dry finish. While ready to drink on release, with careful cellaring, it should continue to develop and blossom for a decade or more.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Riesling has pronounced notes of citrus zest and chalk dust with an undercurrent of fresh rosemary, coriander seed and ginger. Light bodied with high acidity, the palate is nicely balanced by it’s sugar rendering a medium-sweet style with a long spicy finish. Drink it now to 2017.
Rating: 90+"

"Spritzy, full and generous with tangy orange and spice; edgy, crisp and juity; long and nervy."
