There's nothing quite as gorgeous as a Riesling with a bit of bottle age and being able to pick, one of this nature, up at this kind of price, we really are spoilt. Lush stonefruits and ripe lemon citrus marry beautifully with subtle florals and hints of honey. This Riesling has developed more of a bees-waxey feel to the texture since we last tasted it yet it is still bright and fresh with vibrant acidity and a fine mineral edge. Simply gorgeous.

Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine was sourced from a single, low cropping vineyard in the Waipara valley. This has produced an approachable wine with complex citrus, spice and apple characters. Aromas of braeburn apples, citrus and spice with a hint of rose water are immediately apparent. On the palate the ripe citrus attack combines with a thread of mineral acidity. This balanced by residual sweetness to create a refreshing off-dry wine."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage)
"​The 2012 vintage is a single-vineyard wine, made in a fairly low-alcohol (10.9 per cent), distinctly medium style (32 grams/litre of residual sugar). Pale lemon/green, it has strong, vibrant lemon, peach, lime and spice flavours, offering delicious, early drinking."
