Aromas are super, like vanilla bean and fresh cream. The palate strikes a great balance of cream and clean, crisp citrus and stone fruit. The finish is long and zesty, and tastes of lime. Excellent overall. With only 90 cases imported to the U.S., you’re more likely to find it on a restaurant list than on your retailer’s shelf.
Penetrating aromas of apple blossom, peach and tarragon burst from the glass. The flavors are even more intense: Granny Smith apples, with softer, warmer, stone-fruit undercurrents. The finish boasts searingly tart flavors that last and last. Should age gloriously.
Toasty, mealy aromas combine with peach and smoke in a beguiling, complex nose that resembles a fine Chassagne-Montrachet. Flavors of peach and citrus coat the palate without ever seeming overly rich, heavy or oily, extending through the long ripe-citrus finish.
Whether you ask me, God, or the lamp post, anyone who’s ever had Australian Riesling will count this among the country’s best versions of the variety. On the nose, it yields a little sweetness, plus some grapefruit and passion fruit; after a few minutes in the glass, the passion fruit aromas hold on and are joined by kiwi and other fresh tropical fruit.

If your evening is alfresco, you may mistake the wine’s light aromas of fresh-cut grass and hay for the scents of your outdoor surroundings. On the palate, pear and lemon zest aromas are couched…
Winemaker Jeffrey Grosset advises that you open this Bordeaux blend an hour before you drink it, and I am inclined to agree. Even after a couple of minutes in the glass, the nose won’t show more than traces of clay and bread dough. On the palate, the wine is just as hard to read, but the overall impression—great mouthfeel, smooth tannins, and tightly wound red…
This is a very enjoyable Riesling, and always one of Australia’s best. This vintage, yellow stone fruit aromas come on strong, followed up by pear and citrus zest flavors. It is tangy and dry overall, with a very steely, very rigid spine. The first sip feels almost too rigid, but it grows on you. Imported by USA Wine West.
