95 points Bob Campbell MW. "Quite a Mosel-like medium -dry riesling, with moderate sweetness suported by tangy acidity to give the wine an exquisite tension. A fine, pure, silken-textured riesling with a lingering finish. " April 2017.

Only 87 cases were made from a tiny vineyard in Gibbston, a sub district of Central Otago. It produces some of the most remarkable riesling anywhere in NZ. The Drumlin Riesling gives delicate white pepper and fennel seed notes over a core of fresh pears and peach blossoms plus a touch of herbs.
