Overview

An excellent cool summer with cold nights in February has delivered Riesling with bright citrus and mineral characters and good intensity. Careful, selective hand pickings and whole bunch pressing is used to minimize phenolic characters, maximise fruit expression, and aid in bottle development. Old vine material increases quality both in terms of regional character and flavour concentration.

Expert Reviews

So beautifully balanced in its mouthfeel, it's easy to overlook the inherent complexity; apple, lime, pear and mineral all take turns to strut there stuff, the finish long and complete. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011

Exciting and racy, this is a wine that will live happily into the medium-term. Peach, lime zest and preserved lemon flavours sit comfortably amid ultra-fine minerality and a zesty, fresh finish. Rating 94 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Business Monthly, April 2010

A blend of Western Victoria vineyard sources, this has plenty of spicy apple and lime citrus fragrance on the nose and a little honeysuckle creeping in too. The palate's built on immensley spicy lime flavour, with some chalky notes and a bit of grip to close.

Rating 91 - Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2011
