Our 2013 vintage Riesling has a beautiful bouquet with floral aromatics, citrus, apples and lemons. Freshness and vibrancy continue on the palate as lemony goodness is followed with tones of crisp red apple, white peach and quince.
Our Riesling grapes are grown on Paul Sinnott’s vineyard above Lake Waitaki.
An exquisitely balanced wine, the 2013 Riesling is just dry with 8.5 g/L of residual sugar. In 2020, this wine seems to have lifted to another level with 7 years’ bottle maturation. Stocks of our very fine 2013 Riesling, a wine we regard as white wine royalty, are running low. Terrific with a wide range of food.
“Fabulous bouquet with a core of flinty wet stone minerality, apples, lemons and flowers plus sweet mandarin. Fabulous balance and finesse” – www.camerondouglasms.com
“This is an elegant, refined dry Riesling with intense lime and toasty aromas and a stylishly restrained, mouth-watering palate” – Raymond Chan
Jeff’s tasting notes: Palest straw yellow in colour with a subtle green hue; lifted floral aromatics tinged with a hinted of spicy citrus peel and that lovely chalky mineral scent. Just dry (8.5g/L residual sugar), the palate is fresh and vibrant and full of lemony goodness, more than a hint of luscious mandarin, finishing with a gorgeous limey acidity.
