Crisp lime and fresh pineapple fruit. Ever-so-slight hint of kerosene on the nose. A long finish. Satisfyingly mouthfilling but not as intense as some NZ sauvignon.

Colour: very light, with a slight hew of yellowy green. Typical for age and grape. Nose: sharp, clean, green apple, with residual apricot. Quite alcoholic -- somewhat upfront, be relatively tame. Taste: alcohol completely subsides once wine hits the tongue, resulting in a near-perfect balace of acidity. The acid just catches (a touch) at the back of the palate on swallowing, making you want to come back for more. Sharp green apple, but deliciously softened by sweet apricots and pineapple coming from underneath. Slightly more Germanic (i.e. Mosel) than your typical New World Riesling. Crisp, firm, and focused: but very round and yummy, with a lovely sweetness.


Winemaker's Notes:

This single estate Riesling was made from a small block of vines on a family owned vineyard in the western Waipara Valley. It has lemon and lime flavours along with a hint of spice. The gravely minerality is softened by a slight sweetness and the finish is refreshingly dry. A perfect accompaniment to asian food, ripe cheeses or seafood.
