This 2014 release has not yet been professionally reviewed, but the 2013 bottling garnered 93+ points from Wine Advocate and 94-96 points from Raymond Chan.

    Wow, this is a whole lotta Riesling for the fee. The Mount Edward must have put on some weight since my colleague's 2015 review, below, as Riesling is wont to do. Fans of dry, lime-drenched Clare Valley Riesling might want to check this out--I had to read the back label to learn that it's considered "medium dry," but "sweet" it ain't. It does cling to the palate like the surf of a lime sea, slowly receding down the sandy strand. Texture! Depending on how my taxes turn out (note the review date) I just might buy some more of what's left in stock.

    I am so sad that I finally tried a bottle of this, now that were are down to the very end of the vintage. This is a terrific bottle of Riesling. Coming in at under 12%ABV this light weight, full intensity Riesling sings! Lime zest, salty minerality and just a faint earthiness on the finish. All that backed up with slap you in the face acidity. I thought the wine evaporated it disappeared so quickly at dinner last night.
