"96 Points. Bone dry, yet intensely fruity. It's not an easy matter to achieve, and the Grampians can lay claim to be the most successful region in Victoria for riesling other than Henty. Acidity is one of the keys, climate the driver. Screwcap. 11.5% alc. To 2033. $20"- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

"95 Points. This is a delicious young riesling which is dry and yet inviting - without austerity. Dried herb, creamy yeast and dried wildflower aromas lead into a finely textured palate with crisp acidity and a long follow-through. The wine is in excellent harmony throughout" - Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine, Feb / March 2019.

"Grampians riesling. “Flagship white wine”, priced at $20. In a good place. The epitome of elegance. Lime leaf, lime juice, gunmetal and assorted (orange among them) blossoms. Medium- to upper-intensity, lovely clean lines, a keen juiciness and just enough going on in its youth to make you take notice. I’m on the cusp of awarding it gold medal standard and could easily be persuaded to go there. Rated: 93 Points Tasted: Jun19 Alcohol: 11.5% Price: $20 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2019 - 2024+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
