Natalie's Score: 93/100

Absolutely stunning with dried apricot and honeysuckle. The pure essence of a sun shaft cutting through clouds on a spring morning. Mineral depth, lime zest and endless fields of white flowers on the finish. Go Charles go!

Jennifer Hart rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Highly aromatic nose with slate and citrus. This mineral and zesty lemon follow through on the palate. elegant, complex wine. A treat!
Highly perfumed aromas of diesel, slate and lemon zest dance from the glass of this dazzling expression of Riesling at its finest. The third vintage tasted – all 5 stars – and this the best to date; it showcases a slightly oily texture with a persistent wash of focused, racy citrus and kiwi fruit along with streaks of mineral. The tension, nerve and verve on the palate is palpable, delivering a mouth-watering shower and lip-smacking, lingering finish of bracing, balanced ambrosia. Drink 2012 to 2020. Score: 5 (out of 5) Source: Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com
