Description

Pale green and straw colour in the glass. Bursting with aromas of red apple, lime and juice mandarin. Flavours of red apple and lime flow from the first sip. A bold and rich style of Riesling which delivers a crisp and lingering finish.

Sourced from The Mound and Deans vineyards in the Waipara Valley. Situated on the south side of the Waipara River with deep free-draining gravels and a light loam top soil.

Parcels were harvested and brought directly into the winery for immediate pressing, whilst 10% were left to soak on skins for 12 hours. The juice was left to settle until clean, then racked, warmed and inoculated with yeasts. Fermentation stopped when sweetness levels balanced nicely. The wine was cooled for amonth, then racked to mature. Finally the wine was blended and fined using traditional methods.

B
region that seems to suit Riesling- in fact an underrated region for most varieties.
