Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Aromatics – unashamedly floral with rose, lavender, apple & citrus blossom –leading through citrus fruit, ripe red apple & crunchy mineral. Low alcohol makes this wine refreshing in the mouth – lime & soda lightness of being. Fresh lemony citrus flavours fill the midpalate while a structural acid spine adds line & length. Significant residual sugar & acid balance to provide a lovely mineral finish.

Fruit sourced from Hellblock – a riverside terrace of gravels run through with underground streams – a source of moderate vigour and healthy canopies providing shading from the searing Waipara sun. Flavour ripening is accelerated, while brix remain low – allowing the making of this crisp, refreshing & slightly Germanic style. Handpicked at lowish brix, whole bunch pressed – only free run juice is used to avoid excessive phenolic pick up from the skins, cold settled, racked clear for cool tank ferment. Neutral yeast was used to enhance varietal grape flavours, and stopped ferment when natural sugars balanced the crisp zingy acidity."

"This great white comes from the country’s top Riesling region – North Canterbury – and is made by a winemaker from even further south; Jeff Sinnott, who understands Riesling better than the back of his hand. It’s a succulent, decadent, delicious wine with refreshing high acidity balanced beautifully by the intense ripe orange and peach flavours – a wine that shines a new light on Riesling, thanks to North Canterbury’s climate and top winemaking.

Made from grapes grown on the bottom terrace close to the river, which enables the grapes there to develop noble rot, which shrivels them and reduces their moisture, leaving elevated levels of sweetness in the grapes’ natural sugars, so that this wine cruises in with 46 grams of residual sugar, putting it firmly in the ‘sweet’ category. Its high acidity (cool climates retain that) means it has the perception of a medium sweet wine with a lingering finish. Very seductive…"
