Beautifully scented of orange blossoms, lemon juice and yuzu zest with a touch of crushed stones, the 2014 Opou Vineyard Riesling offers mouth-filling honeyed citrus flavors with a lively backbone and balanced sweetness (medium-dry), plus plenty of minerals on the long finish. Drink: 2017-2024 (Mar17)

90/100

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

The Opou vineyard, originally planted in 1969, has rich Waihirere silt loam soils that nurture the roots of the Chardonnay and Riesling planted within. A hedge of Navel oranges runs through the centre of the vineyard, ‘sharing of astrality’ it is said, and perhaps allows the Riesling to evoke aromas of citrus blossom and higher ethers.
