19/20 POINTS & 5 STARS: Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews

This Riesling has fresh and complex aromas of ginger, kafa lime leaf, nectarine, and wild honey. The palate is dense but electric, grounded and becoming full with a salivating and vibrant length. This wine is un-fined and unfiltered and bottled with minimal racking.

"Powerful, distinctive, fragrant, fleshy, varietal and alluring bouquet. Orange and quince, lemon and saffron, apple and lemon, roses and stony soil flavours. The wine dances across the palate with a light youthful freshness, plenty of acidity and flavours that mirror the bouquet. Crisp, fresh and dry on the finish this is a delicious example with a long finish. Fantastic as an aperitif. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2030+."

"Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. A small amount of fine bead persist. The bouquet is voluminous and ripe, nuances of yellow stonefruit melded with subtle fragrant floral, enriched by honey suggested a sweet palate. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, bright and vibrant with crisp acidity; aromas of apple, apricot, pineapple have a taut core; wildflower meadow lingers with a honey note and delicate spices to a refreshing, long, dry finish. Fine-textured phenolic added to the mouthfeel, reminiscent of apple skins; taut acid drive is round-edged flows with good energy. This is a crisp Riesling with the richness of ripe fruit and honey, a taut acid drive and a fine texture."
