Description

  • Medium-dry style
  • Citrus & ginger
  • Blosson florals
  • Sweet finish

"It's instantly appealing on the nose showing crunchy apple, lemon zest, rockmelon and floral aromas, leading to a succulent palate offering excellent fruit intensity, while remaining elegant and refined. The wine is attractively complemented by subtle sweetness and bright acidity, making it wonderfully balanced and flavoursome. Style: Medium-dry. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

This Riesling is a pale gold colour. Lovely aromas of citrus, ginger and blossom florals hot the nose. A crisp and refreshing palate full of wonderful fruit concentration. The finish is enticingly mouth-watering with a hint of natural sweetness.

The fruit for this lively Riesling was sourced from blocks at Mud House's Deans and The Mound Vineyards in the Waipara Valley.

After delivery to the winery the grapes were gently pressed. A portion was allowed 6 - 12 hours skin contact to help enhance the varietal character and to add structure and depth. Once pressed, only the free run juice was settled and fermented with a range of yeasts at cool temperatures for three weeks. The lees were then racked off and kept chilled for three additional weeks before blending.

Food Pairing: chicken or seafood.
