Reviews and Ratings

Ian Hoare rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale straw color. Aromas of green apple. Silky texture with peach and apple flavors combined with mineral notes. A very well balanced sugar to acid ratio. Finishes clean with a hint of spice. One of my favorite white wines I've tasted from that region. I paired it with thai food, but next time I'd probably try a sweeter riesling with the crazy spice of my spicy basil leaf noodles. My grade: A-
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A rich golden hue in the glass, with heady aromas of dried apricot, a hit of crisp lime mid-palate and a lingering candied fruit finish.
Wonderful with spicy Asian dishes or sharp cheeses.
Tasted April 2017.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lovely pale gold in colour. The aromas consist of dried apricot, candied orange and petrol. It is showing a little past it's time on the palate as it has lost the vibrant acidity you would find in a younger Riesling. Tasted April 25, 2017.
