User Reviews for Wild Earth Riesling Central Otago

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine came from the vineyard located on Felton Road in Bannockburn. These vines are sited on a broad terrace close to the Kawarau River, with full exposure to northern sun. The block of Riesling vines is a little less than two hectares - with 4,977 vines planted in total. The 2008 growing season was a stunner, with early budburst and mild Spring conditions over October and November. This wine is clean and lush on the palate, with the sweet honeyed - fruit characters being perfectly balanced by the nicely focused acids that typify the region. Created in a medium-dry style, this wine makes an extremely versatile food match. It’s perfect as an aperitif paired with duck or chicken pate, suited to a wide array of Thai/Asian cuisine, and perfect for those sun-filled summer days, enjoy!
