TROPHY for CHAMPION RIESLING | The National Wine Awards of Aotearoa
GOLD MEDAL | The National Wine Awards of Aotearoa
DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL | NZIWS
Selected for the prestigious Fine Wines of New Zealand list, this is always a special wine to come out of Central Otago and the 2023 is another outstanding effort.
Opulent fruit weight and a good dollop of residual sugar frame a palate that’s redolent with green apple, sweet citrus, lemon and lime. Those lush, juicy fruits are perfectly countered by layers of creamy acidity and the interplay between those two key components could not be more harmonious. Everything is in balance and the overall impression far exceeds the sum of its parts. The finish goes on forever.
Ideally serve lightly chilled as an aperitif so you can see it in its entirety – or match with lightly spicy Asian dishes.
The winery writes "Apple sorbet, lime leaf, grapefruit peel – A beautiful play on sweetness and acidity delivering a pure and balanced off-dry style, allowing for these harmonious fruit flavours to shine."
