    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in color with youthful green tints. Lemons and citrus flavors predominate the signature nose, superbly enhanced by floral notes and perfumes. Generously flavored - the flavors of limes, lemons and citrus carry over seamlessly from the nose. A wine made to either drink now or to put down for many years to enjoy with careful bottle maturation, its core of natural acidity providing terrific balance, great palate length and satisfaction.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A fragrant and expressive bouquet, with pure fresh lime juice and bath talc; taut and racy on entry, with a generous core of sweet fruit to balance out the acidity; long and fine.

    This grows on 40-year-old vines planted by winemaker Kevin Mitchell's father, Mort. The Leasingham site, on limestone subsoil, produces a riesling layered with floral scents, earthy rye, lime pith and pulp along with something spicy. It's supple while sustaining a beam of youthful acidity, needing several years of bottle age to mellow.

    Crisp, like biting into a fresh Asian pear, hinting at apricot as the dry finish persists nicely.

    Wine Spectator

    Sliced melon and pear character follows through to a medium body, with some grape skin and lots of citrusy acidity. Flinty. More relaxed than the reserve.
