92 Points Decanter (2015)

"Don't let the fact that this isn't bone-dry put you off – it's fantastic value for money and the marked acidity keeps it fresh, even though some botrytised fruit has been added to give it a lovely richness. Bags of ripe apricot fruit, and lime citrus, with a mineral streak."

"Ripe, late-harvested riesling in Main Divide's trademark rich, ripe and weighty style, with a touch of spritzig from adding extra freshness. Honey, citrus, grapefruit, apricot and a suggestion of floral character."

On release it is pale gold, with an enticing bouquet of stone fruit, green apple, blossom and potpourri. In the mouth there is satisfying weight and concentration, balanced with refreshing acidity and minerality that creates a lively tension to complement the wine’s off dry finish.
