Spy Valley Riesling 2008
Named after the satellite listening post located over the road from the winery, Spy Valley is in the Waihopai Valley in Marlborough. Happily for us they appear more interested in fine wine than exploding cigars, and recent vintages have seen the winery's trophy cabinet filled to bursting. Like most Marlborough wineries, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are Spy Valley specialties but winemaker Ant Mackenzie and his team also make a great range of aromatic whites including Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. Their quality was recognised in March 2007 when the winery became the first ever producer to win four trophies in the same year at the Sydney Wine Show. This wine offers classical mineral aromas combine with lime and lemons. Delicate notes of jasmine, orange blossom and cinnamon. On the palate fine, steely acidity is balanced by ripe citrus fruit flavours and natural sweetness. Spicy hints add interest to this elegant Riesling.
