Tresillian Cerelia 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

At harvest we noticed that the bunches were much smaller (50%) and lighter than usual. As all of the flavour in wine comes from the skins of the berries, if you have small berries and not much juice, you find more intense flavours in the grapes and thus wines. The grapes were hand-harvested into small bins , transported to the winery and pressed immediately. The intense clear juice was then fermented in typical Canterbury fashion, slowly at low temperatures.

Tresillian is located on the Canterbury Plains of the South Island of New Zealand. The Estate vineyard is situated on a flat but sheltered site with silt loam soils over ancient riverbed of the Waimakariri river. Canterbury is a "Cool climate" growing region, -which results in  the wines having a loads of fruit characters, natural minerality, and lifted crisp acidity. Overall, the climate is mild and dry, which is emminently suited to producing fine Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling wines. The Family lease vineyards on Banks Peninsula. These lie nestled on the Northern Slopes of French Farm Valley, a very beautiful and tranquil spot. The soils were formed by volcanic action some 7 million years ago. The rich loamy, clay based soils, along with the warmer climate help produce rich Pinot Noir wines, and lifted floral romas in the rieslings. Read less

Tasting Notes:

A stunning medium-sweet. Spätlese style Riesling. Aromas of red apple, citrus and honey with crisp acidity balancing the natural sweetness make this a perfect aperitif. Try after dinner with creamy blue cheese and crackers.
