Wairau River Riesling

Winemaker's Notes

Our Riesling vines, planted in 1992, consistently produce lemon and lime and classic stone fruit characters year after year. The stony alluvial soils give fantastic minerality balanced with orange blossom and citrus flavours. Due to low cropping this wine has a powerful intensity and great length – with excellent aging potential.

We have crafted this wine in an off dry style – with racy acidity to tantalise the palate.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light yellow-green; the bouquet has sweet lime juire fruit aromas, the palate being quite rich and fall, but a fairly soft profile. Perhaps the last picking was very late.
