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...
94 points! Pretty much the ‘dry’ Riesling from Dry River, with 6g/L residual sugar.Floral, spicy, subtle whiff of petrol, ripe lime and green apple. Juicy green apple and citrus flavours, gentle chalkiness to the texture, acidity that sits comfortably inside the wine, without jarring or being obtuse, then a grapefruity burst on the finish, with a pleasant pithy bitterness. High style. Wonderful to drink. Gary Walsh, Wine Front, 23 Nov 2017. WA 92 Just a hint off-dry at 4.5 grams per liter residual sugar, the 2016 Craighall Vineyard Riesling saw more time on its lees than previous vintages. At 11.5% alcohol, it's similar in style to a...
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
James Suckling/Nick Stock 93 points. A truely unique vintage for Riesling which allowed the possible best expressions of this variety. The 2018 has orange/grapefruit peel at its core, a mineral pith like texture is the marker that makes this so special. A sorbet like wine, perfect for summer and beyond. Whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, wild yeasts, no temperature control and aged on gross less for 3 months. RS 8g/l Floral and citrus aromas, flavours of lemons, limes, and grapefruit characters, underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity. Aperitif in style with 12.5 % alc, medium...
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. The nose is softly concentrated with deep aromas of ripe lime fruit along with white and yellow stonefruits, and an amalgam of yellow florals with mineral elements. The aromatics form a rounded core unfolding an array of citrus fruits. 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...
