100% Riesling from the Turner Home Block vineyard in the Blind River sub-region of the Awatere Valley of Marlborough.
After harvest, fruit was transported to the winery for immediate pressing with minimal skin contact. The fruit was crushed and only the free run portion of the juice was retained. Specialty Riesling yeast was used for a long cool ferment. The resulting wine was balanced and prepared for bottling.
Fresh citrus aromatics of sweet lime and mandarin mingle with subtle floral notes. Light bodied, this Riesling is fresh and appealing with flavours of lime and grapefruit and a distinct mineral finish reflective of the Blind River sub-region. Rounded and well balanced acidity with mineral notes lead to a long pleasing finish.
