Wairau River Riesling 2016

100% Riesling from Wairau River's Winery Block vineyard in Marlborough.

Fruit was harvested in the cool hours of the morning, then gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation and finishing the wine was left to settle, before being bottled on the Wairau River Estate.

Winemaker's Comments

This single vineyard Riesling carries delicate notes of lime and citrus blossom. The palate is ripe and succulent displaying characters of lemon sorbet, balanced by fine acidity and a flinty mineral finish.

    Cuisine judges' comments:
    "An abundance of apple and citrus blossom aromatics pave the way to a poised, vivid mouthful. The wine is packed with apple, lime, lemon and mineral notes, a fine line of acidity providing direction and definition. A charming dry style."
