Outer quote mark This is gorgeously expressed on the nose showing Gala apple, apricot, lemon peel and floral aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that's bright and refreshing. The wine delivers excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, wonderfully enhanced by subtle sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity, finishing long and delicious. Certified organic. Style: Medium-dry. At its best: now to 2031. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Concentrated, high-energy riesling with lime, citrus, apricot, feijoa and subtle floral flavours. A touch of sweetness is perfectly balanced by punchy acidity to give the wine some pleasing tension and help drive a lengthy finish. Medium-dry. Inner quote mark (11/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark While it's light-bodied, pure and delicate, there's plenty of juiciness in this medium-dry Riesling. The 26g/L of residual sugar is judiciously balanced with laser-like acidity, leaving the palate cleansed and refreshed. Offering apple, lemon and a touch of creamy leesy character, this is a joyful ray of sparkling Marlborough sun in a glass, with a modest 10% alcohol. It's just a little shy in the length department. Delightful youthful drinking. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

K&L Notes

Joe Czerwinski writes in the Wine Advocate: "Since purchasing the winery in 2003, Anna and Jason Flowerday have been the owners of the oldest vines in Marlborough—the site's original Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Riesling date back to 1979. The 11-hectare certified biodynamic property also grows Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah, a tribute to Anna's roots in South Australia."

Riesling is incredibly delicious, especially those that have just a touch of residual sugar. Don’t let anyone tell you different. I absolutely adore the “M” Riesling from TWR. It sits right at the level of sweetness you would find in Kabinett level German wines, and its flashy aromatics and powerful acidity make it one of the most compelling Rieslings you’ll find in our store. Sourced from younger vines in one of Marlborough’s oldest vineyards, there’s a rush of stonefruit, apricot, whiteflower aromatics. On the palate, the sweetness lends weight, with green apple and minerality with a razor’s edge of acidity. The perfect choice for spicy curry, this is a stone-cold delicious bottle you can’t stop coming back for more of.

If you find yourself to be a grand lover of the complex Rieslings hailing from Germany, and are looking to expand your hunt for the next great mouth-watering delicious acid-bomb, TWR is going welcome you with open arms. This wine sings apricots, zippy limes, white flowers, and touches of honeycomb. Each taste left me craving more, and it so dangerous that you will want to share this with everyone. Enjoy now, or see how this beauty will evolve over time. Your Riesling quest just leveled up.
