Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely, well balanced Riesling, with aromas of lime, petrol, stone and peach. Light bodied, with racy acidity, vibrant citrus and a stony, mineral finish. Enjoy with oysters or any fresh shellfish.
Bricklayer's Reward 2018 Riesling is a savoury, off-dry and juicy Riesling with ripe pear, peach and lime zest flavours finishing long on a flinty mineral note. Vibrant and zesty. Pair with a pork schnitzel in a rich mushroom sauce. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
