Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List
Concentrated flavours and ripe, fresh acid create a beautifully balanced expression of low alcohol Riesling. This wine is sweet but the balance as such is that it appears much drier. It is intense and has an ethereal length and cleansing finish that displays all the complexities that make Riesling such a great variety.
Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"The wine has a greenish/light straw hue and offers classic Granny Smith apple, lime and mandarin peal aromas with some delicate orange blossom florals, all held together with an understated flintstone minerality. The palate is delightfully direct, intensely fruit-driven with a sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the wine’s acidity and firm structure and finishes with a cleansing, mouth-drying taste sensation."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2020 Vintage)
"Deliciously sweet (92 g/l RS) riesling that builds exquisite sweet-and-sour tension. A delicately luscious wine with saline, oyster-shell, citrus, lime juice, and a suggestion of apricot and honey. Should age very well indeed."
