Wine Colour
Medium yellow with a light golden straw hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine bouquet still displays a freshness to the aroma with lime juice characters eviden but there is also the exquisite developing Riesling aromas of honey, and buttered toast along with some lime marmalade characters.

Wine Palate
Lively rich lime fruit characters flavours are noticeable throughout the palate. Honey toast characters that are almost oak like provide adequate structure to the mid palate. Cleansing crisp acidity adds life and vitality to the finish.

Designed to drink superbly well upon release, it will also age gracefully with careful cellaring to 2009, possibly longer.

    James Halliday, Weekend Australian Magazine, December 2011

    Bright green-gold; has aged exactly as one would wish, lime, toast and honey driving the bouquet and palate, with acidity playing a key role in the wine as it is now, and will be through the rest of the decade. Drink to 2021.

    Wining Pom, February 2012

    I had tried this wine recently and itÆs just as I remembered. ItÆs really in the prime of its life with a slight golden colour and showing a honeyed edge with the vitality of lime marmalade. The palate is still vivacious with a taste that is reminiscent of lemon meringue pie on the shortest crust pastry. Perky and taut acids push through the finish ensuring a good deal of life ahead.

    This aged riesling is fully mature and ready to roll. The colour is deep golden, the bouquet full of honeycomb and buttered toast, the palate echoing its richness and amplitude. The finish is dry and slightly firm. It would be great with roast chicken.
