“Attractive medium-dry riesling, with restrained lusciousness and apple, lime, floral, chalky, mineral and white peach flavours. Tangy wine with ripe, fruity acidity giving a pleasing tension. Drink 2019-2025.” JAN 19

4½ STARS 
“The 2017 vintage was grown at Grovetown, in the lower Wairau Valley, and made in a medium style (42 grams/litre of residual sugar). Light and lively, it has intense, citrusy flavours, a slightly minerally streak, and excellent richness, vigour and harmony. Already delicious, it’s a drink-now or cellaring proposition. Drink 2019-2030."
