Mature 4 months in large oak cuves.
Produced from a small planting of Riesling, planted on the higher terrace of the Te Muna Road Vineyard, this wine exhibits a juicy texture that is distinctly Martinborough. These grapes were hand-picked, and whole bunch pressed, then fermented cool and left on lees for some four months after vintage resulting in a deeply expressive wine with poise and elegance.
Pale golden straw. Intensely varietal from first opening. Lavender, rose petal and freshly squeezed lime juice notes all jump from the glass. The palate is both deeply complex and immediately enjoyable. Classical floral and citrus notes steam through a remarkably textural palate, whilst an arrowhead of acidity drives through the centre but is perfectly balanced by deft residual sugar. An upright wine that will stand for the ages.
