“Hand-picked, cool-fermented, 60g/l residual sugar, 7.5gl acidity, top gold Tasmanian Wine Show ’16. Beautifully balanced; blossom, nectar and lime juice don’t come better than this exquisitely detailed wine. Tasmanian climate is perfect for this style.” – 97 Points James Halliday, March 2016
“Spicy, limy fragrance, possibly some botrytis giving a tealeafy note. The palate has some richness as well as sweetness and depth and lingers well, too. The acid level seems lower than most of its peers. Lovely drink. May peak relatively early. Very good now.” – 95 Points Huon Hooke
“Hand-picked, cool-fermented, 60g/l residual sugar, 7.5g/l acidity, top gold Tasmanian Wine Show. Beautifully balanced; blossom, nectar and lime juice don’t come better than this exquisitely detailed wine. It is even richer than when first tasted Mar ’16, coating every corner of the mouth” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday, April 2018
