Description

This Mystery Riesling offers lifted lemon and lime aromas, mixed with a hint of jasmine and elderflower. This lush off-dry wine, offers honey flavours with a crisp citrus zest finish. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 3 years.

The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in very even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated through the warm growing season. The warmer conditions meant that harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year. The Rieslings produced from this vintage have the bright and refreshing characteristics that you would typically see from this Vineyard.

The Riesling blocks were harvested separately over a 2 week period from this Vineyard. The fruit was pressed off gently, separating the free run juice from the pressings, into stainless steel tanks to settle for 72 hours. The free run clear juice was then carefully racked to another stainless steel tank, whilst the pressings were racked to a 1000L French oak oval. They were then each inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture and enhance the aromatic Riesling flavours. Once fermentation was completed the wine was racked, blended, stabilised and fi ltered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with spiced Asian-inspired cuisine.

Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and a gluten free diet.
