Description

  • Mandarin
  • White peach
  • Lemon sherbet
  • Off-dry style

This 2018 Cellar Selection Dry Riesling has pure aromas of lime zest, grapefruit and fresh Spring blossoms. On the palate, a sherbet-like zingy acidity leads to flavours of mandarin, lemon and white peach and a hint of minerality giving the wine length and freshness. Riesling grapes are well suited to the Marlborough climate due to cooler Autumn temperatures and cold nights intensifying acidity and fruit flavours.

The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours but temperatures during the growing season started with an excellent Sping and a strong flowering period which was followed by a long spell of hot weather with regular rainfall events through the Summer months. With ample soil moisture, the harvest started earlier than the previous two vintages, luckily the cooler Autumn weather helped retain natural acidities as the season progressed.

Food Pairing: The perfect aperitif wine, or serve with fresh shellfish dishes.
