Crisp apple and citrus flavours with hints of strawberry enjoyed on the palate wiht a lovely linear intensity of acid. Just a hint of salmon pink.

Nick Stock, The Sydney Morning Herald/Age Good Wine Guide 2013 93 Point Rating "There's lovely thread of exotic fruits here: tropical mango and papaya, nectarines and peach stone fruits, really fragrant and expressive. The palate's ripe, bright and juicy wiht a wealth of zesty acidity driving fleshy peach and nectarine fruit flavours. Balanced and convincing."

SILVER MEDAL Tasmanian Wine Show 2012
A medium sweet Riesling with 49g residual sugar. It has low alcohol and sweet fruit balanced with refreshing natural acidity. The sweet palate, dry finish and luscious fruit flavours make this wine a very good match with salmon, spicy food and blue cheese.
Coal Valley Vineyard Chardonnay 2011

A clear vibrant wine with a good balance between fruit and oak. Nectarine and melon drive the palate. 8 months in French oak barrels add subtle oak to this crisp and fresh Chardonnay.

The palate is strikin gfor its poached pear flavours, wiht a little custard spice on offer. A smooth and rewarding, fruity style."
