Complex aromatics of spicy green apples with minerally slate and lemon rind notes. Finishing with a firm acidity which carries the length of the palate but balanced by the depth of fruit. Strong citrus flavours with a spicy edge and a long finish.

A flowery, almost spicy, bouquet, then a finely chiselled and precise palate, lime and mineral flavours intertwined; long-term future assured. Drink 2024Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011
Winemaker John Durham (ex-Cape Mentelle) makes a lovely Riesling, and this is a fine, soft, delicate style with a touch of sweetness which leaves the potential austerity of young cool-climate Riesling. It's intense, fruity and fine, and has a great future.Rating 91 & 4 Star - Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine
This is just beautiful. A classic Great Southern Riesling. Rating 95 - Ray Jordan, WA Wine Guide 2011
