FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A showstopper. Plush and juicy off dry Riesling from winemaher Dave Clouston. t’s flinty and slatey with spiced apple and lime and a delightful shimmer of sweetness to the mouthwatering finish. A sensational example of modern Marlborough Riesling.
Sam Kim writes "Offering scintillating clarity and purity, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, lime sorbet, green tea and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate exhibits brilliant focus and linear mouthfeel wonderfully enhanced by subtle sweetness and vibrant acidity, making the wine wonderfully harmonious and seamlessly persistent."
The winery writes "This thirst quenching, medium-dry Riesling has a delicious mouthfeel and nicely coats the mouth without being cloying. Aromas of ripe citrus and sherbet are mixed with savoury almond notes. The palate is delicate and pure with an old fashioned lemonade type texture, releasing pithy citrus flavours of apricot curd and lime."
