With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
Precision, texture and balance – tick, tick and tick. This fabulous Riesling floats across the palate with heady flavours of jasmine, honeysuckle and mandarine.

On the nose, there are vibrant aromas of orange blossom and lemon zest and floral tones. The palate is equally bright with citrus and rose petal leading to a crisp lemon finish. The balance of fruit weight and natural acidity delivers an excellent mouthfeel.

Here's a classic Mount Barker Riesling that is just delicious. A pure expression of fruit, with crunchy acidity and refreshing lemon and lime... it's such a baby, and yet will be able to cellar for over 20 years. Made from some of Mt Barker's oldest vines (there's a clue), this mystery white was given 96 points from James Halliday who described it as 'exquisite'. In other words, it's an absolute cracker!

A great example of Tassie Riesling - lime zest, talc minerality and a touch of white blossom. The palate has great concentration and focus with linear acidity, culminating in a fresh and lengthy finish. Highly Recommended.

"Arguably the most detailed Churinga to date reaching lofty heights with its clarity and whorl of citrus from mandarin blossom, lemon juice and pith with flavours building along the palate. Its frame is linear and elegant, and the acidity has laser precision right through to the long finish." Halliday Wine Companion

This is a fine Tasmanian Riesling with inviting floral notes. The palate is soft yet lively with intense flavours of citrus, passionfruit and green apple. A decent line of acidity slings through the palate, contributing balance and great length before ending in a clean and dry finish.

"Peglidis presents itself as a wine of intensity and depth with complex flavours that are quite savoury in outlook. Coriander seeds, lemon salt, aspirin and wet slate. Of course, there's excellent fruit and acid balance, both key to its vibrancy, detail and potential age-worthiness. On song."Halliday Wine Companion
