Expert Reviews

No short sprinter, this is a marathon runner that always stands out for its searingly structured acidity and fruit profile to go the distance. Beautifully clean and precise, it’s accented with lemon and lime, this year with a touch of red apple richness that gives it some immediacy, but it’s in no hurry. Drink 2016-2019

Rating 94 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly Edition 34 (30/SEP/2011)

Simultaneously delicate and intense, this brightly etched Riesling firmly puts the accent on Watervale’s subtly musky, lingering rose petal perfume. Lovely length and spine tingling line. Super fine.Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective UK (SEP/2011)
