2 x Alana Estate Martinborough Riesling 2015

AWARDED 17.5/20 POINTS: Raymond Chan, Mar 2018

"Full, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-gold hues, pale edged.  The bouquet is softly full with a moderately concentrated heart of lime fruit melded with secondary toast, honey and mineral notes.  This has a gentle presence.  Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and gently mouthfilling with delicate flavours of lime fruit harmoniously intermixed with honied and secondary toasty development notes.  The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant with fresh acidity, and the wine carries along a light-textured line leading to a lingering finish.  This is a gently mouthfilling medium-dry Riesling with harmonious lime, toast, honied and mineral flavours on a vibrant palate.  Match with Asian cuisine over the next 4 years.  Fruit from the ‘Jackson’ block with a small amount of botrytis, fermented in tank and a very small portion on skins in puncheon to 12.4% alc. and 11 g/L RS" Raymond Chan, Mar 2018

Alc: 12.4%

2 x Alana Estate Martinborough Riesling 2016

AWARDED 18/20 POINTS: Raymond Chan, Mar 2018

"Bright, even straw-yellow colour with hints of light gold.  The nose is firm and intense with well-packed aromas of lime and lemonade fruit, white and yellow florals, complexed by a thread of toasty secondary development.  This has depth and finesse.  Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has good depth and intensity of ripe lime and lemonade fruit flavours, along with floral and toasty detail.  The fruit forms a well-concentrated heart and shows good presence, and is balanced by fresh, lacy acidity.  The wine is guided by a very fine line, with good energy, leading to a long, lingering finish.  This is a well-concentrated off-dry Riesling with intense flavours of lime, florals and toast, balanced acidity and a fine flow.  Serve as an aperitif and with Mediterranean fare over the next 4-5 years.  Fruit from the ‘Jackson’ block with no botrytis, cool-fermented to 10.1% alc. and 8.2 g/L RS" Raymond Chan, Mar 2018

Alc: 10.1%

2 x Alana Estate Martinborough Riesling 2017

AWARDED 16.5/20 POINTS: Raymond Chan, Mar 2018

"Bright straw-yellow colour with a little depth, lighter on the rim.  The nose is very elegant with fresh, light aromas of lime fruit interwoven with subtle notes of honeysuckle and a little muskiness, unfolding chalky mineral elements.  Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has light fruit flavours of limes entwined with soft floral and herb nuances, along with a little honeysuckle and musk.  The palate is slender in expression with moderate depth, and is enlivened by brisk acidity.  The wine flows along a light, phenolic-textured line with some drying grip to balance the fruit sweetness.  The flavours recede as the wine carries to the finish.  This is a slender off-dry Riesling with light lime, floral, herb and musk flavours on a crisp, dry-textured palate.  Serve as an aperitif over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Jackson’ block with approx. 10% botrytis, cool-fermented in tank to 11.9% alc. and 6.5 g/L RS" Raymond Chan, Mar 2019

Alc: 11.9%
