Description

VINEYARD DESCRIPTION 

This wine is produced from grapes grown in the Wairau Valley. These warm and stony sites produce ripe fruit, ideal for a dry style wine. The vines which are amongst the oldest Riesling vines in Marlborough are intensively managed with shoot thinning, crop thinning and leaf removal, all practised in the pursuit of quality.

WINEMAKING
The individual vineyard parcels were harvested and transported to the winery for immediate pressings to capture the freshness and purity of the fruit. Fermentation was conducted at a cool temperature utilising a selected yeast strain and the ferment stopped to retain a small amount of residual sugar to provide balance to the finished wine. Post fermentation the wine was left on lees to gain richness and complexity.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT
This is a dry style of Riesling which is versatile and suited to a wide variety of food matches or as an aperitif. It has classic Marlborough Riesling characters of peach, citrus and honey with a long refreshing finish.

FOOD MATCH
This dry wine is a perfect match for most seafood and many Asian-styled dishes.

IDEAL DRINKING 
Enjoy while youthful or cellar for at least five years for a more honeyed and complex style.
