16/20 Pts. Jancis Robinson - Quite evolved nose. Only just off dry and with real New World Riesling nose. Fruit salad and just slightly phenolic.

A marvellous, crowd pleasing Riesling! Clear and bright pale straw colour. The nose shows a range of intense youthful aromas of lemon and orange blossom. The palate is impeccably clean, dry and refreshingly acidic. Astoundingly upfront flavours of pink grapefruit, sherbet and delightful floral notes. Finishes wonderfully fresh with excellent length.  

90 Pts. Robert Parker

Viticulture & WinemakingGrapes are manually sorted by hand allowing a small percentage of botrytis cinerea, leaving behind unwanted green materials. The bunches are directed to the press without being crushed and then gently pressed for 3 hours. The juice is chilled down to 5°C and then racked off the lees. It ferments at 14°C with anchor yeast for 2.5 weeks. In some vats the fermentation is stopped just before dryness in order to retain some residual sugar, this portion is added to the final blend. No acid addition or fining products.
Oak Ageing: No oak.
