Old vine riesling from the Great Western/Grampians region. Fundamentally delicious white wine. Lifted, floral, driven by citrus, soft on the tongue – and it lingers. Kaffir lime, red apple, curry leaf maybe, a spicy/chalky note. A delicate, minute sweetness helps ease the drive of the fruit. Any day, every day. Tasted : Oct 17; Alcohol: 11%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017-2027; Rated: 93 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

Light medium-yellow colour with a dried herb, bracken and nettle aroma, fresh and crisp on the palate with a tickle of sweetness and a delicious juiciness. Very good and very approachable already  4 Stars.  Houn Hooke

Bright straw-green, fuller than many of its vintage peers. The length of the palate is exceptional, as is the fluid line of the intertwined citrus fruit and acidity, lime and Meyer lemon fruit. The result is a Riesling that will be drunk before its due time, and I would be happy to join forces tonight. Drink to: 2032; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2017; Alcohol: 11%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion
