  • Off-dry style
  • Granny Smith apple
  • Lime zest
  • Racy acidity

"It's beautifully ripe and delicately lifted on the nose showing Granny Smith apple, peach, fig and lime zest characters. The palate delivers elegant weight and linear mouthfeel, well supported by a hint of sweetness and racy acidity, offering a lingering mouth-watering finish. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

This Mt Olympus Riesling is from select vineyards predominantly in Marlborough’s Awatere valley. It is a fruit driven, easy drinking style with flavours of mandarin, green apple and lime zest. Perfect for drinking immediately or will continue to develop over the next two to three years from vintage date.

Mt Olympus overlooks the clean green valley and the flourishing vineyards of Marlborough. Renowned for producing some of the world’s best and most sought after wines.

The grapes were harvested at  the peak of flavour development in the cool of the evening. It was then fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine was carefully blended, then balanced, stabilised and prepared for bottling.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with fresh Wairau River whitebait.

I don't usually buy Riesling but was very pleasantly surprised to find this nice wine at a good price and with free shipping. So pleased with it that I bought another box.

surprisingly good for the price.

Valerie - 15/02/2021

At $8.99 per bottle with free postage, I wasn’t expecting it to be so good, but it rate it as one of the best wines I’ve had for under $20

Sue - 26/01/2021

This was an amazing find. Went well with fish and our guests quickly decided to order some. We have found it a wonderful partner with risottos , lamb and salads.

A very nice Riesling at a great price. I do not like them sweet or too dry and this one is wonderful.

Mark - 02/10/2020

Unfortunately sweeter than I thought I'd ordered

Mary - 19/11/2021

Fruity at first and dry on the finish. A very enjoyable wine. Appreciate the lower alcohol level too! Will buy again.

Catherine - 13/08/2021

Hard to beat the value here. Lower alcohol, lighter wine but great on a summer's day with a salad.

Peter - 11/03/2021

Good value Riesling would order again.

This repeat order lives up to my previous comments. May it be around for ever.

Too young or Thin

Julian - 20/08/2021

Am enjoying this wine but find it has a bit too much fresh acidity for my taste

Glenys - 01/08/2021

Haven't tried this one yet, but Mount Olympus wines are always good

Patricia - 22/07/2021

Enjoyable quaffer and pretty good value for money. Recommend!

Joan - 19/07/2021

Light and almost dry, very clean tasting. Good value.

Barry - 26/04/2021

A nice wee tipple, not your classic riesling, almost has a Sauvignon leaning, but definately great value and a nice wine on a summers afternoon

Stephen - 28/02/2021

A little light in taste

Dennis - 30/12/2020

A little sweet for me,which is why I give it only 3 stars-for those who like a medium sweet riesling it is a good buy
