Quick Overview

96 Points James Halliday Wine Companion - Wow this is good. There's a lot of very good riesling around but the details here are so punchy and so vivid; it just has that extra something. Lime, slate and spice flavours but it's the palate intensity and power through the finish which sets it apart." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

95 PointsThe Wine Front - ..... t’s a rapier-thrust of tightly wound, lean and refreshing fruit with purity and velocity to burn. Such a sense of precision here too, especially helped by the quivering tension found from the tight, chalky boundaries of the wine. You get the sense of quality fruit and considered winemaking from first sip. Best yet, beyond that, it’s fantastic drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Product Description

Pretty and perfumed, this wine has a delicate power that is somewhat disarming.  Exuding floral lime notes, chalky texture and taught acidity, the palate is long, elegant and fine.  The palate shows textural qualities of the 100% whole bunch fruit used to craft the wine in 2017, with beautifully poised acidity and phenolic grip underpinning fabulous length and texture that will surely enable great ageing potential.  Un-fined. Filtered. Screwcap.

95 PointsThe Wine Front - It’s a boon for this wine to have the extra year over the Young Vines (2018). It helps unlock the wine a little, opening up the bouquet and letting the palate show a little extra width. Notwithstanding the Young Vines is excellent, and similarly made, it’s just that time passing seems to work in the favour of riesling from Crawford River – taking time has always been one of the virtues of this extraordinary producer.  Moreish, delicious white that meshes citrus fruit, green apple crunch, mixed mineral-like characters, talc-like texture and exceptional length into a cohesive riesling of quiet power and joyous perfume. It’s a rapier-thrust of tightly wound, lean and refreshing fruit with purity and velocity to burn. Such a sense of precision here too, especially helped by the quivering tension found from the tight, chalky boundaries of the wine. You get the sense of quality fruit and considered winemaking from first sip. Best yet, beyond that, it’s fantastic drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
