2013 Mount Edward Estate Riesling Central Otago

94 points Sam Kim: "It's beautifully fragrant on the nose displaying white peach, lime zest, flint and a touch of savoury complexity. The palate is concentrated and focused with whispering sweetness and racy acidity, leading to a superbly long finish. The wine is linear and finely textured, and has a fabulous presence on the palate. At its best: 2015 to 2023." (8/2014)

2013 TWR (Te Whare Ra) Riesling "D" Marlborough (Elsewhere $25+)

93 points James Suckling: "Perfumed and fragrant with lime and lemon aromas flecked with higher tones of jasmine, frangipani and citrus blossom. Great fruit purity and clarity here.

Medium-bodied, the wine is very elegant and perfumed on the palate with earth laced cherries giving way to the multi-layered and very long, minerally / ferrous finish. Harmonious and beautiful - truly impressive. (LPB)" (1/2015)93 points James Suckling: "Sexy cherry fruit on the nose leads you to hints ...Read More »
