93pts "Made for texture and complexity, this has a thread of wet slate to the abundant, fine and fresh lemon-peel and peach aromas. The palate is very smooth, soft and almost fleshy with an edge of fresh, lemon-lime acidity cutting a crisp, pure finish." - James Suckling Reviews

91/100 "Light, bright yellow colour, with a restrained but clean aroma that is mineral and earthy, and only lightly floral or fruity. The wine shows more fruit on the palate where it is soft and rounded, not entirely bone-dry, but lovely balance is the overall impression. There is real richness to the follow-through, enhanced by a touch of tannin grip." - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

93/100 "Pale yellow colour, with a lifted fragrance of fresh flowers and whispers of citrus blossoms. The wine is just off-dry, the sweetness helping make it more approachable at this tender age. It's very young and bright, will live long and reward cellaring, and it is delicious now. The balance is superb." - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

92/100 "Refreshing and delicate nose: delivering damp stones, citrus pith (both mandarin and lime), apple flesh with plenty of light floral blossom and a hint of sweeter honeysuckle. Dry, and showing fine purity as the fruit tails into a textural, structural exploration. Acidity is bright and bracing, leaving a balanced juxtaposition of refreshment and thirst." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

90pts "Bright, floral, fresh, slightly soapy, some apple concentrate and lime essence stuff going on, feels a bit concocted and non-grape fruity but also settles into being a decent drink, adult cordial style. Mouth-watering acidity a lovely feature and finishes the wine really well. Decent drinking." - The Wine Front

Top Picks “Attractive aromas of beeswax, toast, lime zest and ginger. Perhaps some skin contact at work here with a pithy viscosity and a richness to the palate. The racy acidity and talc notes reign in the fruit to give a long, persistent and drying finish.” - Justin Purser, Young Gun of Wine

93/100
"Very light, bright yellow hue. The aroma is fresh and bright also, with lovely crisp lemon-blossom notes, the palate is juicy and refined, off-dry, delicate and yet also intense with quite good persistence, the finish clean and appetising. It's not overly dry, but harmonious and approachable. A very smart riesling." - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

91pts "Old vine riesling grown on three Eden Valley sites: Springton, Flaxman Valley, Angaston Hills. Such a fine-boned release. It’s not an intense wine but it runs on such delicious lines. Florals and talc, mineral and cool cucumber. Or something like that. Chilled on a warm day; perfect." - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

93/100
"The bouquet is of lemon sherbet - like opening a packet of 'Whizz-Fizz', a childhood memory, then a swirl of honeysuckle, white flowers and sweet citrus. Flavours of ripe red apple and nectarine, a thread of sweetness just perceptible but skilfully woven into the fabric of the wine." - Steven Creber, Halliday

93pts "Exquisite riesling. Floral fluid, gently textural, bursting with life, pure. Slatey, gunmetal-like character meets lemon sorbet and an assortment of florals. It's as delicious as it is fine." - Campbell Mattison, The Wine Front

Top 100 SA Wines - Tony Love

92pts "Soft. Some spritz. Minerally, smoky, almost yeasty. A different expression of Eden Valley riesling in a way and yet there’s a clear, pure, citrussy line, a touch of talc and a general impression of reserve. It’s hard not to become enamoured. Sweetness here is modest at most. Basically it just drinks really well" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

91/100 "It takes time to get into this because it's not a classic Eden Valley riesling - whole-bunch pressed after 18 hours on skins. Instead it has a savoury tone, texture and chewy phenolics, a smidge of cinnamon, star anise and glace lemon rind." - Jane Faulkner, Halliday

Gold Medal - Barossa Valley Wine Show

93/100 "Three Eden Valley vineyards, handpicked, half of the crop spending time on skins. 6g/l residual sugar. Presents as delicate but lengthy with lime rind/juice and slate flavours floating convincingly through the palate. Gently textural. More soft than sweet. Beautiful style of wine." - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday

"Nose of lime, honey subtle with hints of Roseanne. fresh gooseberries, fool on the palate and a gorgeous balancing sweetness. Very long finish." - 2021 International Wine Challenge
