Description

"Nicely aromatic and fruity Riesling style, gently sweet to fit the balance of the complete wine. Drinking well now as an aperitif or light food wine, fresh and cheerful fruit. Two years good drinking ahead" Peter Saunders

"The wine is gorgeously fruited and fabulously fragrant on the nose showing nectarine, mandarin, lemon curd and subtle toasty notes, followed by a concentrated palate that is wonderfully weighted and brilliantly focused. It is juicy and flowing with whispering sweetness and bright acidity, making it immensely appealing" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2019

This highly aromatic Riesling evokes aromas of tangerine, ginger and honeysuckle florals. An off-dry, yet understated palate of preserved lemon and ripe Summer stonefruits followed by a smooth line of acidity and a fresh, clean finish.

This wine was produced from the same two vineyards ion the Omaka sub-region of Marlborough's Wairau Valley that have produced Toi Toi's award-winning Rieslings.

Through some astute vineyard management, with low yields and an eye to the sky the viticulture team have done a superb job delivering some flavoursome fruit. Riesling can so easily be over cropped, but judicious thinning and hand leaf plucking, to open the fruit zone, post-flowering and pre-veraison. This always proves fortuitous as the effects of late season showers are dired easily allowing great flavour development and magnificent acid/H balance. The team's deidication to the Riesling cause and some fastidious winemaking has ensure an aromatic beauty in the bottle. This 2018 Reserve Riesling is the most certainly refined and delightfully drinkable.

Food Pairing: Due to the more dry style of the Reserve Riesling, we recommend pairing the 2018 vintage with the tang from Vietnamese style dishes. Enjoy this wine with a lemongrass-barbequed pork and a rice vermicelli salad.
