Torlesse Canterbury Riesling

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
The 2006 vintage is labelled confusingly (the back label says the wine comes from 'the unique terroir of the Waipara Valley', yet the grapes were grown in Waipara and other parts of North Canterbury), but it offers good value. A slightly sweet style with fresh, crisp, citrus and passionfruit flavours, it's balanced for easy, early drinking.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
The 2004 vintage is fruity, lemony and appley, with moderate flavour depth, a distinct splash of sweetness and firm acid spine. Fresh and lively, it's priced right.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
The 2003 vintage is a medium style (20 grams/litre of residual sugar) with crisp, ripe citrus and tropical-fruit flavours, showing good depth. The 2004 is fruity, lemony and appley, with moderate flavour depth, a distinct splash of sweetness and firm acid spine. Fresh and lively, it's priced right.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Floral and citrusy on the nose, the 2002 vintage is a blend of grapes from Waipara (50 per cent) and the Canterbury Plains. It's a medium style (15 grams/litre of residual sugar) with good acid balance and depth of lemon/lime flavours and a crisp finish. A pleasant drink-young style, it's priced sharply.
