Curtis Marsh, The Wandering Palate, Nov 2008

Misha’s Vineyard “Limelight” Riesling 2008 – Beyond the mountain fields freshness, the white clover honey nuances, the sherbet of lime, the intriguing laksa leaf and lemongrass spice, the cold granite minerality and tangy acidity; what impresses me most is the superb balance, soft texture and agreeability of residual sugar checked by invigorating acidity, to which one would normally associate with the extremities of the northern hemisphere, yet there is a distinct sense of place in this wine, a pureness that could only be New Zealand. Bravo! Encore!!
