95 points Wine Enthusiast

Opening with a lovely mix of apricot, green apple and petrol, this wine offers enviable structure, complexity and balance. Lush on the midpalate, it never loses focus, retaining mineral-like stoniness and linear, fresh acidity.

91 points James Suckling

Grapefruit, kiwi fruit, fresh cloves, spices and smoke are the main attraction on the nose. A tangy core of stone and green fruit is supported by crunchy acidity on the palate, which is medium-to full-bodied and delicious. 

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of classic lychee, lime, and white grapefruit notes emerge from the 2016 Riesling, which is medium-bodied and has a kiss of sweetness, balancing acidity, and a great finish. This beautiful, outstanding Riesling is going to age nicely for at least a decade.
