Rockburn Riesling 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit from our Parkburn (Cromwell Basin) vineyard is used to make this classically styled off-dry Riesling. Nectarines and mandarins dominate the intensely fruity nose of this wine in its youth, and the palate is filled with the same concentration of citrus fruits with further hints of pineapple and peaches. The excellent balance of this wine is brought to completion by a long and cleansing finish. Best enjoyed with long lunches in the sunshine and delicate seafood dishes, this wine will continue to evolve over the next decade.
