    Hunter Valley, NSW
    97pts James Halliday
    In the words of James Halliday, who scored this 97 points, ‘This variety is grown all over Corisca, and I've spent days tasting it there. First Creek's effort is extraordinary. It has a perfumed bouquet and a rich palate with a blend of tropical and citrus fruits comforting every part of the mouth and then allowing the inclusion of lime-infused acidity on the finish. Wow.’
