BOTTLE AGED TO PERFECTION
Produced by celebrated Mountford winemaker CP Lin, this is excellent medium-dry Waipara Riesling that has blossomed with bottle age. Full and rounded in the mouth, it is a plush and juicy style with layers of honeyed sweet citrus fruits and some botrytis influence on the palate. Fresh acidity cleans up the finish and makes another glass mandatory. This wine has been bottle aged to perfection and is showing a very subtle lanolin character from bottle development. It comes very highly recommended.
The winery writes "The grapes were grown on the deep gravels of the Waipara Valley, hand selected chilled over night before being whole bunch pressed. Waipara’s dry mid-autumn during 2010 meant botrytis did not develop in the Riesling vineyards. As a result we have lime and lemon zest on the nose with a pure acid finish."
