Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Pale barley straw in colour with vibrant yellow, silver and green hues. This wine gives off a sense of tension and youth. Aromas of lime leaf, blossom and fruit are so pure and inviting. As it evolves in the glass it reveals subtleties like dusty dry herbs, juniper and gravel. The taste is reminiscent of a perfect Mandarin, so bursting with sweet flavour the acid provides direction and pithy phenolics provide a lingering dry mouthfeel. One of our finest examples to date.

The poor flowering conditions of the previous spring actually worked in our favour with Riesling. The typical heavy crop thinning required to ensure good fruit health and concentration was naturally performed through a significant reduction in bunch and berry size. Picking our first parcel of fruit for the season and the first component of this wine couldn’t have been more effortless, bursting with flavour and immaculate in condition the bunches were whipped from their groomed environment on a late March morning. The second parcel came in two weeks later amongst a much busier pace, but the quality was just as good. Whole bunch pressed; the free run juice was fermented bright with a neutral wine yeast while the pressings were fermented hot in barrique with natural yeast. The wines spent winter and early spring on their yeast lees before considered fining, blending and bottling occurred in quick succession at the end of spring."


18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, October 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"The Boneline is the reincarnation of Waipara West Wines, which was founded in 1989 and mostly an export brand until it had a makeover in 2013. The wines are now more widely available in New Zealand and this is the drier of the winery’s two Rieslings with 6.8 grams of residual sugar per litre to balance the crisp acidity. It’s made from grapes grown on the free-draining Glasnevin Gravels in Waipara. The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to stainless steel where they are fermented with a neutral yeast and remain on lees for extra body until bottled in late summer."


4 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"The Boneline Dry Riesling 2019 is a bone-dry but not austere riesling with lime zest, white flowers, oyster-shell and mandarin flavours. The wine has a thrilling sweet-and-sour tension with tangy acidity helping to drive a lengthy finish."

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
