2019 - Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, minimal SO2. 1yo riesling doesn't come more powerful or intense than this brilliant Porongurup example, with glorious lime/lemon fruit and a whipcord of acidity giving the backbone for a long, oh so long, life. 98 points, James Halliday
2017 - Be prepared to kneel before the perfection of a supreme riesling, the bouquet's blossom floating in the air of a spring day, the palate a celebration of the purity, elegance, drive and length of a white wine that you absolutely know will outlive your patience. 99 points & Wine of the Year, James Halliday
2012 - Light straw-green; the bouquet has nuances of citrus, herb and spice, but is as yet holding its cards close to tis chest; the palate is a different matter, with a vibrant shaft of lime and lemon buttressed by flinty acidity on the lingering finish and aftertaste. 96 points, James Halliday
2011 - Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, using only free-run juice; the fragrant blossom-filled bouquet foretells the wonderfully intense and juicy palate, full of lime and lemon flavours before moving through to a long, dry finish. What more can you ask for? 96 points, James Halliday
2010 - Pale straw-green; exceptional clarity, purity and intensity, and a long and exciting life ahead; lime, apple and pronounced mineral characters coalesce on the palate and aftertaste, leaving the mouth fresh. 96 points, James Halliday
2008 - Fragrant and flowery, but a little more complex than the varietal; while bone dry, has both depth and length with a strong substrate of minerally acidity. Deserves five years minimum to open up and reveal all it has to offer over the next 10 years. 95 points, James Halliday
