Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2017


"Beautifully ripe and expressive, this lighter alcohol (9%) riesling offers fabulous aromas of lemon curd, mandarin, rockmelon and floral on the nose. The palate is juicy and mouth-watering with subtle sweetness which is perfectly balanced by bright acidity, leading to a delectable vibrant finish. At its best: now to 2018" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit March 2017

A refreshing Riesling, well-balanced acidity and juicy mouthfeel. The palate displays lovely ripe melon and citrus complimented by subtle nettle notes to finish.

Harvested early from a selected low cropping vineyard in the Awatere Valley in Marlborough,  this Riesling brims with natural acidity.  The lightly pressed juice was settled and then fermented slightly cold with clean fermenting yeast.   The wine, with lower alcohol and higher acidity, was stopped with a refreshing natural balance of fruit sweetness. Minimal handling through to bottling resulted in a pure expression, but lower in alcohol Riesling. Perfect for immediate consumption, the high early harvest acidity will also allow it to age fantastically.

Food Pairing: Enjoy it on its own or with fresh seafood.

At first try I wasn't so sure of this wine but persevered and this is my second order. I like that it is light in calories and alcohol.

pleasent easy drinking riesling from good producer

Brian - 06/11/2018

Maybe `lighter' but still significant alcoholic effect!

Graham - 07/10/2018

way too sweet for me

Darryl - 18/11/2019

Certainly different with a strongly citrus/green apple bouquet and flavour. Initially was disappointed as it was sharper & unlike other reislings I have enjoyed, but in the end decided it was pleasantly refreshing and it did match strongly flavoured seafoods very well.

Glenys - 13/10/2019

Sweeter wine than I usually buy, but enjoying it none the less

Marilyn - 11/10/2019

Great low alcohol wine and good for a hot summers day at lunch

Is just OK.
