4 STARS, Winestate Magazine, Clare Valley and Surrounding Regions, July/August 2014
"Interesting nose with its minerally/talc/floral characters. Lovely zingy crispness on the palate with fresh clean floral/citrus flavours."
94 Points ~ Nicks Wine Merchants, www.nicks.com.au
"Reillys really lead the pack in the $10 - $15 bracket when it comes to hugely flavoursome Shiraz and Riesling. This shows a litle more acidity than their $10 "Ryder" Riesling which also comes highly recommended. Brilliant water like colour with distinctive greenish tinge around the edges and watery hue. The nose displays intense lime and lemon aromas followed by a hint of orange rind and some talc mineral like notes. Reflective of the nose the palate is dominated by lime and lemon flavours followed by some talc and mineral. Clean crisp crunchy acid finish. Long aftertaste of lime, lemon and steely mineral."

"Straw-green; the wine has a floral bouquet and a generous display of lime juice fruit backed by an attractive minerally acidity that lengthens and lightens the palate; great overall balance."
Ross Noble, 'The Courier' newspaper, 28th May 2014
"Delicate now, this fragrant wine promises much development to come reasonably rapidly. The blossomy nose leads to a citrusy palate enlivened by crisp acid. It went really well with seafood pie."

93 POINTS, Tony Keys, KROW 63, August 2014
"Shared with friends after the tasting it was very well received and I was chided for only giving 93 points, great value..."
93 POINTS, James Halliday, www.winecompanion.com.au, tasted 14/11/13
"Medium to full purple-red; many of the Reilly's wines have an element of rusticity, but here the volume of juicy black fruit carries the day on the long, medium-to-full, full-bodied palate, the tannins are evident but balanced. Exceptional value."

Cane Cut: Traditional wine making method whereby the canes on the vine are cut at optimal ripeness and the fruit is left to dry on the cane, increasing the sweetness and flavour intensity of the grapes.
After drying for 20 days on the cane, the best of our Riesling was hand-picked to create this luscious wine.
With lifted floral aromatics, the delicate palate is rich with flavours of orange marmalade, honey and a tang of lime zest on the finish.
