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 in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting notesBouquet of citrus blossoms and honeysuckle. Full and luscious in the mouth, the fresh flavours finish with racy acidity reminiscent of lemons and limes.
This versatile wine is destined to gain strength and body with cellar age.
