Lime, apple and delicate floral notes provide a lovely nose which is matched with lots of lemon/lime flavours and background notes of peach and honey comb. Acidity provides wonderful focus to the palate and highlights this wine’s balanced minerality. A great Marlborough Riesling from a near perfect vintage.

Awards & Reviews

Sydney International Wine Competition 2018 - Trophy - John Ryan Memorial Perpetual Trophy for Best Aromatic Wine of The Competition.

The Shout - Cameron Douglas - 91 points

Ripe, juicy and fleshy fruits bouquet with aromas of apricot stone, peach, pear, mandarin and apple. Quite floral and with suggestions of wet stone minerals - very attractive. On the palate - just off-dry with a little residual sweetness; fresh and crisp acidity, has a ripeness about it which enchances the orchard fruit flavours suggested on the nose; a wine that dances nicely across the palate - drink now and through to 2026.

Cuisine March 2017 issue 181 - FIVE STARS - BEST BUY

  Five stars - best buy....A whiff of toast mingles with lifted Rose's lime juice scents. In the mouth this Riesling has length and elegance, lime and stonefruit notes propelled by fine ripe acidity. Serve it alongside a salad of rocket, heirloom tomatoes and grilled eggplant.
