92 Points - "A regular star among the crystalline Eden Valley Riesling brigade…Super fresh lime and quartz aromas, intense and striking. The palate cuts clean lines of lime juice flavour, pinned into place with zesty acidity sparkling quartzy minerals twinkling away long through the finish." - Tyson Stelzer - Wine Business Monthly - November 2008.
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw yellow with tinges of green.
This wine continues to impress with its consistent delivery of a delicate bouquet of lemon blossoms and fresh limes.
The palate is fine, and at this early stage is bordering on austere; infused with citrus flavours, culminating with a lovely zesty acidity.
This wine is delicious paired with freshly shucked oysters, is excellent with Asian style dishes, and will complement all seafood dishes, particularly shellfish with lemon based sauces.
Drink while young, fresh and crisp or cellar for up to 8 years. The freshness of its youth is maintained excellently under screw cap. Typical of great Riesling, this wine has the pedigree, structure and acidity to develop and truly reward those with the virtue of patience.
