This wine was produced from fruit grown in the Moutere clay gravels and 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 both wild and cultured yeasts.
Tasting notesBouquet of mandarin, orange blossom and honeysuckle.
Full and luscious in the mouth, the fresh flavours
finish with racy acidity reminiscent of lime and mandarin.
This versatile wine is destined to gain strength and body with cellar age.
