This wine was produced from fruit grown in free draining gravels of the Waimea Planes. The small crop of handpicked Riesling grapes was partially destemmed and soaked on their skins overnight prior to gentle pressing and cool fermentation with wild and yeasts and aging in a stainless steel tank.
Tasting notesBouquet of orange blossom, honeysuckle and warm spice.
Off-dry, round, full and luscious in the mouth, the fresh flavours
finish with racy acidity reminiscent of sweet lime.
This versatile wine is destined to gain strength and body with cellar age.
