Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Freshly squeezed lime juice with hints of rock melon and jasmine flowers on the nose awaken the palate to zesty lime, spicy white pepper and incredible earthiness that sings of limestone soils. The prominent acidity is beautifully balanced with ripe citrus giving the wine great length and extreme freshness. This is a naturally lower alcohol Riesling that is delicious as an aperitif but will also pair wonderfully with fresh fish, seafood, and light-medium spiced Indian or Thai cuisine. A fragrant and earthy wine, it will continue to develop for 10+ years showing more richness and secondary characteristics."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is very fresh and taut, with tightly bound aromas of lime fruit with white florals, honied nuances and a little musky talc, unfolding mineral notes. The aromatics are soft and refined, but refreshingly vibrant and clear in presentation. Off-dry to taste and light=bodied, this has a taut, tightly concentrated core of white florals and lime fruit, along with nuances of honey and steely minerals. The mouthfeel is brisk and near-racy, with crisp, steely acidity. The wine flows along a fine-textured line of fruit extract and delicate phenolics, carrying to a dry, lingering finish of lime, florals, honey and minerals. This is a taut, concentrated dryish Riesling with vibrant lime, floral, honey and mineral flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 5-6+ years. Waitaki Valley fruit, vines planted 2007, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 9.5% alc. and 25 g/L RS, TA 9.82 g/L and pH 2.91. 90 dozen made."
