Winemaker's Notes

The wine in the glass has crystal-like clarity, with a straw color and green hues. The aromas are rich and lifted, focusing on cumquat, pink grapefruit, nectarine and limes, showing its Lodge Hill vineyard heritage. The palate is supportive of these aromas and is enhanced by a zingy natural acid backbone and flavours of mandarin, white peach and strawberry at the forefront. The wine has immense length and intensity of flavor, with a crisp, clean finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale straw-green; back label hyperbole to one side, the wine has a highly fragrant and attractive blossom bouquet, the palate lively and expressive, with lime juice fruit and a well balanced finish. "
95 Points

"Quintessential young Clare Riesling, with lime sherbet aromas and flavors and a delicate thread of talclike minerality running through it. It's light to medium in body, very clean, fresh and zesty on the finish. Drink now, or hold 5-7 years to allow a more evolved, toasty character to emerge."
90 Points

"Bright straw. High-pitched aromas of lemon zest, lime, quince and white flowers. Dry, steely and precise, offering energetic citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of white pepper. The firm finish offers very good cut, leaving floral and chalk notes behind. This would be a good cellar candidate. "
