Description

Winemakers
Notes

A prolonged Indian summer with cool nights, typical of Marlborough, led to expressive wines with great natural acidity. The season produced pristine fruit with beautifully ripe flavours. Sourced from our Brookby Hill Vineyard, the fruit was hand harvested and gently pressed. The cool fermentation was stopped when the sweetness and acidity were in perfect balance. The wine then rested on yeast lees for three months to gain texture and palate weight. The acidity, texture and minerality of this wine interplay harmoniously.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe citrus, honey suckle and sherbet are mixed with toasted sesame seeds and savoury almond notes. This thirst quenching Riesling has a delicious mouthfeel and nicely coats the mouth without being cloying.
