100% Riesling from carefully selected vineyard sites across Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere valleys.
Fruit was hand-picked in cool morning conditions. The grapes were destemmed and held on skins for 4-6 hours before being lightly pressed. After settling and clarification, the juice was fermented at a very low temperature with a select yeast strain to retain intense varietal flavours. The ferment was stopped to allow some residual sugar to balance the natural high acidity.
Fresh-flavoured and light-bodied with a racy acid length and an off-dry finish. Flavours of lemon and lime, delicate florals and green apple are to the fore, with hints of ginger spice. Great with food and also makes an ideal aperitif.
