CHAMPION RIESLING & GOLD MEDAL | NZ Organic Wine Awards 2021
FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
We absolutely loved this one. This is medium-sweet Waipara Riesling from the award-winning Terrace Edge team that just claimed the Champion Riesling prize at the NZ organic wine awards. It's plush and opulent with a deliciously dry finish. A must-try for riesling fans.
Sam Kim writes "Offering splendid fruit purity and perfume, the wine shows Gala apple, orange peel, rockmelon and rich floral aromas, followed by a wonderfully concentrated palate that's succulent and flavoursome. It's beautifully enhanced by elegant sweetness and vibrant acidity, finishing impressively long and delectable."
Candice Chow writes "Bright, even, straw-yellow with some depth. The nose is elegant, and poise, mouthwatering minerals, citrus fill the glass, along with an array of calming florals. Med-sweet to taste, medium-bodied, bright aromas of lime, mandarin has a taut core and mouthwatering; lime flowers unveil along with delicate spice, and crunchy minerals flow with tension to a long, lingering finish. The fruit is gentle and aromatic, grows in concentration; thirst-quenching taut acid cut provides balance to the sweetness and drives to a sustained finish. This is a medium-sweet, fragrant Riesling with a tight core of citrus, floral details and lengthy mineral tension."
