Vineyard Sites

Our Botrytised Riesling is drawn from three vineyards located within the Wairau Valley. Two are on geologically young, stoney, free-draining gravels close to the river; producing intense citrus aromas and pristine crisp acidity.  The third is our Southern Valleys vineyard, composed of geologically older soils, crushed stones with a portion of clay which gives the fruit flavours of stone fruit and Asian spice, softer acidity and tremendous mouth texture.

Vinification

Harvest occurs 4-8 weeks after normal physiological ripeness and the degree of botrytised berries varies per bunch, usually around 40-90%.  All fruit is hand selected, slowly pressed, cool fermented, cold settled, blended, fined and filtered prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

It’s got the backbone of a great Riesling, glorious gold glint, orange marmalade, apricot and toffee aromas, sweet opulent palate and a clean lingering finish – perfection!. Full unctuous mouthfeel, perfectly balanced with crisp, fresh acidity.
