93/100 - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, November 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Ripe, tangy riesling with lime, citrus, floral, wildflowers and a suggestion of spice and root ginger. Deliciously fresh with attractive sweet-and-sour tension. Very approachable now but with the potential to develop well in bottle."

4 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Riesling Tasting, February 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Pretty, elegant and floral with light white blossom and lush red apple aromas. A sweet palate with plenty of acid backbone to hold everything in balance providing a delightful – almost irresistible – moreish quality to this wine. Quite insatiable."

New zealands biggest selling Riesling!!

Winery notes "This Riesling is a medium sweet style with striking notes of citrus blossom, lime and sweet mandarin. A succulent, juicy sweetness and a crisp clean finish. The dry 2019 vintage created a bounty of intense flavour and quality for our Marlborough vineyards. From veraison throughout the growing season the hot, dry conditions favoured our vineyards as they have good access to water. This coupled with the season’s warmth, created quality fruit with generous aromatics, concentrated flavour, texture and lovely natural acidity."
