Prior notes from March 2020 still apply. Most enjoyable and refreshing - mandarin and lime juice notes on the palate. Diminished acid. I hope European Riesling makers continue to use screw caps. Would be difficult to find an Australian Riesling producer who doesn’t use screw caps these days.

Energetic and crisp. Classic Alsatian fruit with a touch of honey.

Aging nicely. Enjoyed braising with and drinking this lovely balanced riesling. The years have taken the edge off of its bracing acidity and added a hint of honeyed character.

An unbelievably good value entry level riesling - Great, stony mineral touch with underripe apricot and some toasted nuttiness, interesting but restrained. In the mouth there is a great snap of salty minerality, a stony grip on the back end with snappy lemon & lime sherbet.

Always a treat, especially for the price. Petrol on the nose. Very lively on the palate. Never disappoints!

Not fantastic drinking as a quaffing wine at the bar but very nice accompaniment to chilli squid and goats cheese tart with balsamic sauce.

Always good to see a screw cap on a European Riesling. Aromas of Pear, green Apple and Kiwi Fruit on nose and palate. The palate also has a creamy texture with a refreshing grapefruit twist at the end with Medium minus acid. Subtly different to German Dry Rieslings just over the border. A good time to drink and excellent value for money.

Find me a better entry-level competitor (there isn’t one)
