Bob Campbell MW 93 points. “Meta’ means transformation, in this case by botrytis influence. It’s a rich and flavoursome wine with peach, honey, grapefruit marmalade and musk flavours. Initial sweetness contrasts with subtle steely acidity on the lengthy finish.” Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review. 5/2/2019 WINERY NOTE: We chose the name ‘Meta’ for our botrytised, late harvested Riesling, as it embodies the remarkable change of condition the grapes undergo as they are transformed by noble rot over the final weeks of Autumn. From healthy fruit into shrivelled but concentrated, intensely sweet berries; once harvested these have the...
95 Points - Bob Campbell MW Medium-dry riesling with apricot, peach, lime, grapefruit, citrus and floral rose petal. Subtle sweetness is perfectly balanced by tangy acidity giving the wine delicious tension. Smooth-textured with a lengthy finish. @GREYSTONE

Gold Medal - Sydney International Wine Competition 2017 Silver - Decanter World Wine Awards 2017 4 Stars - Winestate Magazine 4 Stars / 90 Points - Huon Hooke Riesling grapes are carefully selected from the best vines in our Marlborough vineyard, gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to give intense floral and citrus characters. The wine is fruit-driven in style, elegant and delicate. The bouquet is typically intense fresh lime, green apple and floral aromas. The palate is vibrant and elegant with racy acid in a dry style.
Raymond Chan 18.5/20. Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full with well-concentrated and deeply layered aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits, along with honey and marmalade, musky botrytis, unfolding savoury yellow stonefruits. Medium sweet to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and lusciously opulent, exotic, ripe citrus and tropical fruits entwined with honey, marmalade and musk. The mouthfeel is smooth and unctuous, and the flavours form a rounded heart. The wine is lively and vigorous with good underlying power and a fine thread of acidity lending cut and balance....
Raymond Chan 18.5+/20. Bright straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale on the edge.

Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has rich and mouthfilling flavours of ripe citrus fruits and yellow stonefruits with subtle honied and yellow floral flavours along with nuances of lees and minerals. The palate has plenty of fruit extract and presence with fine-grained phenolic textures lending a refined...
