Accolade's galore for the 2018 Joshua Tree Riesling

95 points - Gold

The gently spicy edge to the blossom aromas is coupled with a whisper of musk, the palate adding to the appeal of the bouquet with its display of lime and lemon zest palate. There is power to the base, yet no hint of extraction. Really enjoyable, and great value

94 Points for Superstition Riesling

94 Points

The label design is a bit on the scary side but there’s nothing scary about the wine quality.

Rich, textural Riesling. Youthful and vibrant but inherently complex. Not your average Kaos killer, you might say. Kaffir lime, lemon sorbet, gun smoke, a spray of herbs. Chalk. Musk. Fennel seeds. Really quite super.
