95 Points “A fitting name for such a delicious wine, and one under the $30 mark. Tangerine, lime skin, honeysuckle and blossom nectar. This is a Germanic off-dry style that exudes class. Impossible not to love with sugar sweetness executed like a perfect quenelle of lime sorbet. Scandalous by name and nature. The kind we all want in our life.” 2024 Halliday Wine Companion, Shanteh Wale

92 Points “Lovely and fragrant, it’s loaded with citrus blossom, limes and green apples. The balance of fruit and acid is well done, and it is important to note that the sugar certainly doesn’t overtake the wine. A minerally backbone drives through with a fine chalky finish. It’s a great wine.” QWine Reviews, Oct 2023

Product Description

Colour: Pale Straw

Aroma: Fragrant floral, passion fruit, pineapple, tropical fruit, pear and citrus.

Palate: The enticing juicy fruit up front leads to a lemon-lime sorbet mid palate and a refreshing citrus finish.  A very fruity wine with a good balance between up front sweetness and a tangy citrus finish.

Cellaring: I made this wine to show off the fresh young fruitiness of Riesling from Orange, so I recommend it be consumed young.  However, I am looking forward to tasting this wine when it is 5-10 years old as I suspect it will evolve from fresh and fruity to become quite luscious and citrusy.
