Raymond Chan, Jun 2016

Description

"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with light lemon-gold hues. This has a gently full and voluminous nose with aromas of ripe lime fruit entwined with exotic florals and honey, and suggestions of marmalade botrytis, toast and minerals. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses moderately rich and lush flavours of limes, exotic florals, honey and toast with some botrytis detail and mineral complexity. This has a rounded and concentrated core and the wine flows along a light, phenolic-textured, fruit extract line. Balanced acidity lends a crisp, mouthwatering freshness and the wine finishes with lingering flavours of limes, honeysuckle and minerals. This is a moderately rich and exotic medium-dry Riesling with some textures and a mouthwatering mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel" Raymond Chan, Jun 2016

The 2016 grava Riesling is distinguished by its citrus fruit character and a crisp mineral finish.

Grava was founded in 2014 by experienced winemaker Alistair Gardner, his wife Karla Falloon and her Grava Wines family. The well-established vineyard sits on the alluvial soils of the Southern Wairarapa in the heart of the winegrowing region of Martinborough. It produces high quality wines from Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Alistair is grava’s viticulturist and winemaker and uses traditional and modern viticultural and oenological methods in the vineyard and winemaking operations. The grapes are all hand- harvested and grown using sustainable practices with Alistair overseeing all stages of vine upkeep, crop growth and fruit maturity to produce the best quality fruit for processing and fermentation.

Alistair’s attention to detail, extensive international knowledge and dedication to excellence characterises the grava vineyard and winery operations.
