100% Riesling from the Turner Home Block vineyard in the Blind River sub-region within the Awatere Valley of Marlborough.
Fruit was crushed and only the free run portion of the juice was retained. Speciality Riesling yeast was used for a long cool ferment. The resulting wine was then balanced and prepared for bottling under a screw cap closure so as to retain as much of the freshness and fruit character of the vineyard as possible.
Fresh citrus aromatics of sweet lime and mandarin mingle with subtle floral notes. The palate is light-bodied, fresh and appealing, displaying flavours of lime and grapefruit with a distinct mineral finish so reflective of the Blind River site. Rounded and well balanced acidity with mineral notes leading to a long pleasing finish.
