Produced from old vines farmed on the coolest slope. Bottle ageing for five years before release transforms fresh lemon and floral aromatics into a complex wine of limes and brioche. Further richness and complexity will accumulate over future decades.
Light to mid-yellow colour, bright and clear. The bouquet is wonderfully aromatic and fresh for its age, lightly-toasty and loaded with lemon and lime fragrances, the palate intense and mellowing nicely, with properly dry balance and cleansing aftertaste. It's ageing gracefully and holding its youth well. A superb semi-mature, traditional Aussie riesling.

Pale straw-gold; heady aromas revealing the added layers of age and it is all about complexity. Lime marmalade, baked ricotta topped with lemon zest and toasty, too. It also has a line of acidity keeping this buoyant, tingling with freshness. Drink to: 2026; Date Tasted: Jan 2020; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Jane Faulkner; James Halliday Wine Companion
