West Brook Riesling 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Each individual parcel of fruit is separately crushed and pressed early morning in Marlborough, with the chilled juice then being transported to our Auckland winery to complete its transformation. The first parcel to be harvested produced a wine of great length and elegance. The palate was focused and concentrated, a pure minerality was revealed. The second parcel was broad and fulsome in its palate weight, with extremely rich tropical aromatics. 100 percent fermented in stainless steel, using two different yeast strains and a range of ferment temperatures, to retain pure fruit expression. The various components are then blended together and allowed to rest on light yeast lees until bottling. Tasting Notes: A vibrant lime-gold edged Riesling. Citrus blossom, mandarin, fresh lime zest and exotic spices on the nose. The palate initiates in the citrus spectrum with flavours of ginger, toasted coriander and cumin appearing. A creamy texture evolves with a fine mineral edge, gently balanced with slight natural fruit sweetness. A wine with an elegant and sustained presence on the palate, revealing great concentration. Alcohol: 11.6% vol. TA: 7.2g/l RS: 8.7g/l pH: 2.98
