Riesling 2017
Waipara Valley
  • Tasting Notes
  • Wine Background
  • Aroma

    Crisp cut apple, juicy mandarin and subtle bees wax and struck match.

     

    Palate

    Lively ripe lemon/satsuma, is followed by a crisp acidity and mineral wet  stone . A bright flavour rich Riesling with a moderate sweetness balanced    just right with characteristic Waipara mineral acidity & a fine phenolic texture

     

    Food Match

    Great with dumplings or pulled pork

    Cellaring

    Made to be approachable young and fresh but will certainly develop more    depth and complexity with age

     

    "Racy and vibrant, this wine has a rich mouth-feel and is sure to become a favourite for the cellar"

    Andrew Brown, Winemaker
