94 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Concentrated, dry riesling from one of Marlborough's oldest vineyards. Tangy, mouth-watering wine with lime, oyster-shell and subtle white flower flavours. A serious riesling with the potential to age well Inner quote mark (9/2021)

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. (RG) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

Despite the fact that TWR makes K&L’s best selling Sauvignon Blanc, what Te Whare Ra loves more than anything else is Riesling. When they purchased their estate vineyard in 2001, they came into possession of Marlborough’s oldest Riesling Vines, planted in 1979. The TWR Dry is made entirely from these plantings and is their flagship wine. This riesling is minerality in a glass. Aromatics wet stones and jasmine aromatics. Soft and rich texture shows Alsatian influence with a delicious cut of acidity and green apple and melon abounding on the palate. A masterly crafted wine that easily ranks among top rieslings in New Zealand.
