Complex aromas... and in the mouth it's sweet and luscious, but not cloying, with tangy acidity providing zesty balance. Sweet and lush, lingering and lovely, yet fresh and vibrant. A classic" - Ralph Kyte-Powell, 96 points; "A bouquet of considerably complexity. Bottle-age is a part of it. Touch of marmalade. The wine is rich and full, sweet, lusciously-flavoured and tremendously complex. A beautiful botrytis riesling" - Huon Hooke, 95 points    $36.95 per bottle

Richly sweet, but with fresh, fine riesling acidity and complex whiffs of petrol and marmalade, it's wonderful on its own or with tarte tatin. Definitely a wine worth waiting for" - Jonathan Ray's top 10 Kiwi wines, UK Telegraph $39.95 per bottle
