Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Soft florals
  • Honeysuckle
  • Brisk acidity

"Elegant, bright and pristine, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, lime sorbet, crunchy apple and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a juicy palate that is linear and persistent. It is youthfully charming and tasty, wonderfully structured by racy acidity. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2020

"Bright straw-yellow colour with a little depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very elegant with fresh, light aromas of lime fruit interwoven with subtle notes of honeysuckle and a little muskiness, unfolding chalky mineral elements. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has light fruit flavours of limes entwined with soft floral and herb nuances, along with a little honeysuckle and musk. The palate is slender in expression with moderate depth, and is enlivened by brisk acidity. The wine flows along a light, phenolic-textured line with some drying grip to balance the fruit sweetness. The flavours recede as the wine carries to the finish. This is a slender off-dry Riesling with light lime, floral, herb and musk flavours on a crisp, dry-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Jackson’ block with approx. 10% botrytis, cool-fermented in tank to 11.9% alc. and 6.5 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Mar 2018" Raymond Chan, Wine Reviews, Mar 2018
