96 Points - Bob Campbell, Master of Wine

Rich, concentrated dessert wine with strong honey/honeycomb, apricot, peach and a suggestion of lime zest. A luscious wine supported by a perfect balance of fruity acidity that prevents any sense of cloying. Delicious wine - great as an aperitif or matched with appropriate desserts

It is no wonder that Noble Riesling has always been regarded as the nectar of the gods as these wines are rare and only come along a few times per decade when the conditions are absolutely perfect and luck is on our side.  

When the juice slowly emerges from the skins, it yields a beautifully concentrated juice we lovingly refer to as liquid gold.

Winemaker John Belsham personally oversaw the labor intensive pick as only the most concentrated berries were picked over a four week period in May 2015. 

The grapes were pressed in a traditional basket press and drop by drop the liquid gold began to appear, slowly, slowly.

Although deliciously sweet and concentrated, the wine has a beautiful acidity that dances across the palate and will be generous for years to come.
