From the winemaker…
Lifted lime blossom, grapefruit, quince and lemon peel notes jump from the glass. The Te Muna Valley acid drive comes to the fore, with the untouched phenolic drive to add length and persistence. The 7g/L sugar is almost invisible, adding but a touch of roundness in the mid-palate to the purity of the acid drive.
Sourced from 18 year old clone 110 Riesling vines that have been hand tended throughout the season. The 2020 growing season was one of the hottest and driest on record, meaning special care was taken to balance the vines for optimum ripeness. Perfectly cool nights drove the flavour production, complimented by the hot days, meant the grapes were picked to showcase the acid drive and flavour spectrum.
Harvest date: 26th March, 2020
Immediate recognisable bouquet of fresh green apple and white blossom, lime-flower and mandarin peel. Fragrant and enticing. on the palate – crisp, fruity, refreshing and dry. The acidity not only adds crispness and palate appeal, but carries the flavours of apple and citrus through the palate with precision and style. Dry and lengthy finish. Well made, young and primary. Best drinking from 2022 through 2030+ 94 pts Cameron Douglas MS
