Description

"This is elegantly styled and delightfully attractive on the nose showing lemon/lime peel, crunchy apple and jasmine aromas, leading to a zesty palate that is vibrant and mouth-watering. The wine offers lovely fruit purity backed by fine texture and subtle sweetness, which is perfectly balanced by racy acidity. Brilliantly focused and linear with a persistent crisp finish. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2021." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018

Intense aromas of green apple and citrus blossom with a hint of spice. This elegant Riesling displays bursts of limes and orange with an underlying creaminess on the palate. The fruit flavours give a sweet impression which finishes dry.

The grapes were harvested from select vineyard sites within Marlborough’s Awatere and upper Wairau Valleys at the peak of flavour development in the cool of the evening.  Each parcel was fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks in order to retain the varietal characters and freshness.

A lovely aperitif wine to have on its own or a fabulous match with pan fried snapper or Asian cuisine.
