"Dried-apple and lemon aromas with some slate and petrol follow through to a full body with layers of fruit and a fresh, aniseed-tinged finish."

"Bright, pale yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. Light effervescent clinging on the side of the glass. The wine has a complex bouquet, softly filling the glass leading with mandarin and peels, along with lime, stonefruit, beeswax, ginger and honey. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of nectarine, lime taken over by mandarin and zest, ginger warming the back palate, unfolding beeswax and honey. There is a hint of kerosene lingering with white spice added interest. Seamless, salivating acidity entwined with citrus peels, balancing sweetness lend a dry, sustained finish. This is a juicy, well-balanced Riesling with a citrus core and complex flavour range."

"Aromatic, ripe, fresh and enticing. A myriad of aromas and flavours from pacific rose apple to lemon and barley sugar, honey suckle and white peach to mineral. There’s a short burst of bitrytis intensity that layers in complexity and power. Off-dry as the wine touches the palate with contrasting acidity and fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet. Delicious, fresh, balanced, well made and ready to drink from today and through 2029.

A portion of nobly botrytic fruit has produced a distinctive style of wine. It has a core of citrus fruit characters, particularly lemons and limes, but there is also an undercurrent of white fleshed peaches and nectarines. The botrytis has added hints of honeysuckle and also given the wine extra concentration and richness. A seam of natural acidity and minerality flows through the wine and gives it an off-dry finish length and zest.
