Esk Valley Riesling 2017
100% Riesling grown in the Wairau Valley, on warm and stony sites which contains some of the oldest Riesling vines in Marlborough.
Individual vineyard parcels were harvested for immediate pressings. 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. Post fermentation the wine was left on lees to gain richness and complexity.
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.

4 STARS - Cuisine Magazine, NZ Riesling Tasting 2018
"Pale in the glass, with understated floral scents, this is a riesling that grows on you. In the mouth it’s very clean and precise, offering fresh garden herbs and citrus notes. It flows with energy and juiciness, with a little textural firmness. “A correct, well-constructed palate,” noted Simon Nunns."
