Crater Rim Waipara Riesling has quite a following and when you get this wee Waipara beauty in your mouth you know why. Lush stonefruits and ripe lemon citrus marry beautifully with subtle florals. It has developed a bees-waxey feel to the texture since I last tasted this yet the fine mineral acidity keeps it fresh and bright. 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."
