Description

"Youthful and delicately fragrant, the bouquet shows crunchy apple, grapefruit, floral and lime peel characters, followed by a finely textured palate that is linear and mouth-watering. The wine is pristine and elegant, brilliantly structured by racy acidity, finishing long and vibrant. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2018

A nose of citrus & green apple is followed by a luscious palate with a smooth and comfortable dryness. Complex minerality completes this wine. Will develop in the bottle over future years.

Sourced from the home vineyard on moutere clay. The oldest commercial vineyard in the South Island. Although growing conditions were less than ideal with sporadic rain over vintage, the low crop levels and diligent vineyard husbandry produced this Riesling with great flavour and finesse.

Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique winery specialising in hand-made wines. The vineyard was first planted in 1973 and has the oldest commercial Riesling vines in the south Island. Kahurangi is a Maori word with a number of translations, two being "treasured possession" and "precious jewel". The logo is a stylised reproduction of the Nikau palm, which proliferates in the valleys and west coast beaches of the Kahurangi National Park. The Nikau palm was a treasured source of food and flax to the indigenous Maori tribes in the South Island.

Food Pairing: A lovely food wine which goes well with most cheese or fish dishes.
