Brilliant water like colour with distinctive highlights of green around the outskirts. Aromas of lemon, lime and green apple are overlaid with wet steel characters and a distinct minerality. Fantastic palate intensity with mouth watering lime, lemon and orange rind flavours cascading through to a long dry finish that also sees elements of subtle talc, wet steel and flinty mineral present. Nicely textured with crunchy fresh acidity and a long lime, citrus, subtle orange and flinty mineral aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
Wow this is good. There's a lot of very good riesling around but the details here are so punchy and so vivid; it just has that extra something. Lime, slate and spice flavours but it's the palate intensity and power through the finish which sets it apart. Drink by 2032.

Campbell Mattinson – James Halliday’s Wine Companion

It’s a boon for this wine to have the extra year over the Young Vines (2018). It helps unlock the wine a little, opening up the bouquet and letting the palate show a little extra width. Notwithstanding the Young Vines is excellent, and similarly made, it’s just that time passing seems to work in the favour of riesling from Crawford River – taking time has always been one of the virtues of this extraordinary producer.
Moreish, delicious white that meshes citrus fruit, green apple crunch, mixed mineral-like characters, talc-like texture and exceptional length into a cohesive riesling of quiet power and joyous perfume. It’s a rapier-thrust of tightly wound, lean and refreshing fruit with purity and velocity to burn. Such a sense of precision here too, especially helped by the quivering tension found from the tight, chalky boundaries of the wine. You get the sense of quality fruit and considered winemaking from first sip. Best yet, beyond that, it’s fantastic drinking. Drink 2018-2035+
