Aromas of freshly cut lime, lemon sherbet, honey-suckle, and bees wax leap out of the glass while the palate displays a gorgeous balance and tension between luscious sweetness and lively acidity. Packed full of fruit flavours and dangerously drinkable,

Another lovely wine from Beach House.  Clean, fragrant, fruity.

A lovely fragrant off-dry riesling, with a honeysuckle aroma.  Loads of tropical fruit, pineapple and citrus.  This is a food wine, the slight sweetness would make it a bit much for a straight quaffer for me anyway.  I'd recommend with cheese and crackers on an autumn afternoon, a seafood dish for a main meal, or it's just sweet enough to match with a fruit salad for dessert.  We had this with a standard week-night chicken & vegetable stir fry and it was a good match also. I actually wish I had more of it, buy two bottles.

A nice easy going easy drinking Riesling. Definitely a Riesling. However I have had Rieslings of what I would say are comparable quality, at a sharper price (see my review for Kakurangi Riesling) I would have to try both again, maybe as a comparison, but I think value for money I'd go for the Kakurani.

Yes I liked it, but have had better Rieslings.  One to watch.

Crisp and fruity.  Perfect on a hot day with a lovely platter of cheeses.

A rather luscious off dry Riesling - let this one sit in the glass a little while so all the flavours and aromas can develop.  Good acidity (limes) with great balance.  The fruit (ripe apples) came through a lot better when warmed in the glass for a bit.  Everyone loved this wine for its full body, long finish, and palate-cleansing acidity.  Good with slightly spicy foods, salty cheeses, or just on its own.

A pleasant Riesling without being fantastic, I chilled it well down however I think it improved a little when it sat a while and warmed a little.  A very full fruity taste and nice aromas

Strong Riesling characteristics, good depth of flavour, residual sweetness, 10.5% alcohol about right, I'd recommend this to accompany a meal.

A very easy drinking Riesling,full body with a hint of apple. We had this last Saturday with a very nice cheese board, but I would have to agree with James not as good as Kakurangi Riesling.
