4.5 STARS - Michael Cooper, Listener, June 2022
This wine is consistently good and bargain priced. Well worth cellering, the latest release was estate grown at Rapaura, in the Wairau Valley. Attractively scented, it is medium-bodied, with very good intensity of lively, citrusy, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, and a crisp, dryish, persistent finish.

87 POINTS - Bob Campbell, Real Review, January 2022
A chunky, dry riesling with green apple, lime juice and lemon blossom flavours. An initial hint of sweetness is quickly overpowered by assertive acidity that gives a dry and lenghty finish. Best drinking 2022-2029.
