Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This medium-sweet Riesling, inspired by the Spätlese wines of Germany, is produced from our Parkburn (Cromwell Basin) Vineyard.

Apricots and mandarin juice dominate the nose of this wine in its youth, and the palate is filled with lively notes of tangerine and lime. The immaculately balanced rich sweetness and fine acidity are brought to completion by a very long and cleansing finish.

Easily enjoyed as an aperitif, or with long lunches, cheese, white meat or delicate seafood dishes, this wine will continue to evolve over the next decade."


5 Stars & Top 5 Cuisine Riesling Tasting, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Winemaker Malcolm Rees-Francis has crafted a riesling that offsets the variety’s becoming florals and fresh herb notes with minerally, flinty intrigue. It’s a concentrated, medium-dry style with plenty of energy and tension."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Estate-grown at Parkburn, in the Cromwell Basin, and made in a low-alcohol (8.5 per cent) style, the 2016 vintage was 'Inspired by the spatlese wines of Germany." Pale lemon/green, it is light and lively, with excellent vibrancy, delicacy and depth, and a gently sweet (59 grams/litre residual sugar), mouth-wateringly crisp finish. It's already delicious."
