James Suckling Review
Rated 93
Super tight and flinty aromas with a burst of lime and pithy grapefruit and plenty of spicy spark. The palate is taut and succulent, showing slightly chalky texture and lime, apple and green-pear flavors, delivered with power through the finish. Prominent acidity. Drink now, but better as a 5 to 6-year-old wine.

Wine Tasting Notes
Light lime green. Unashamedly Eden Valley fruits - ID'd instantly! All regional riesling markers on display. An array of florals - white spring flowers (jonquil), and hints of fresh lime. Crushed mixed-stone gravel ... not quite at talc stage. Yet. Aromatically extols an undeniable purity, minerality and freshness! Very lime - citrus driven palate augmented by just ripe Granny Smith apple, cucumber granita and traces of juniper berry. A distinct chalky acid presence noted, yet ideally balanced so as not to intrude or distract. Admittedly a wishful second guess, but no reason to suspect why this palate shouldn't remain intact over the next decade or three! Imminently drinkable.
