Delicious Aged Riesling

In stock


Mountford are clearing out this gorgeous, perfectly mature, sweeter styled Riesling. Labelled "Pure" as the 2010 vintage in Waipara enjoyed a gloriously dry and settled autumn so no botrytis developed in the vineyard and the resulting wine showed clean fruit character on bottling. Eight years on and we see a Riesling with all the joys of bottle development – honeyed nuances, light toast, a touch of talc and superb length but still with an underlying freshness.

Winery notes (2010 Vintage)
"The grapes were grown on the deep gravels of the Waipara Valley, hand selected chilled over night before being whole bunch pressed. Waipara's dry mid autumn during 2010 meant botrytis did not develop in the Riesling vineyards. As a result we have lime and lemon zest on the nose with a pure acid to finish."

93/100 Jamie Goode (2010 Vintage)
"Complex, spicy and mineral with high acidity under the pear, melon and citrus fruit. Lovely concentration and great tension between the acid and sugar."

93/100 Andrew Graham, The Australian Wine Review, September 2011 (2010 Vintage)
"Pure, deep, sherbety and overt. The middle is rich, the finish long and juicy. That sweetness and acidity lingers through the finish. Long and juicy finish. A fraction fat and sweet? Still luscious wine indeed. Nice."

88/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2011 (2010 Vintage)
"The 2010 Pure Riesling has pronounced lime, peach blossom and lemon peel aromas over notes of fresh herbs and fennel seed plus a whiff of chalk dust. Light bodied and fully sweet in the mouth, it has crisp acid and lower alcohol, finishing long and steely."
