The way to make great Marlborough Riesling is simple and straighforward. Leaf pruning of the vines is essential in achieving maximum quality of fruit. Moderate yields, moderate leaf plucking and harvesting at moderate brix levels all combine to produce an amazing Riesling wine. Grapes are harvested and gently pressed, the excusively free run juices are inoculated through a choice aromatic strain of yeast to enhance natural fruit flavours. Pressings are discarded and ferments are maintained at low temperatures to retain the vivid and intense citrus characters of Marlborough Riesling. Upon completion the wine is allowed to sit on lees for a several months before being gently filtered and bottled.
Brilliant straw colour with pale hue. Lively nose, florals and ripe fruit hinting of peaches and pear, lemons, lime and mandrarin peel aromas leap out of the glass. An off dry palate exhibiting impressive concentration and length, nicely balanced by firm citrus acidity. Tantalizing suggestion of mineral and satisfying textures, balance and weight over crisp acid backbone.
