The bouquet is a fine blend of floral and herbal notes with a healthy dose mineral andred apple. Very lifted. The palate is lively and crisp with a lush mid palate mirroring thenose with its floral and citrus notes added to that is some granny smith apple. This winehas great balance and presence and a lingering dry finish.
The combination of fine days and cool nights typical of Marlborough during late summer/autumn is ideal for the later ripening Riesling. The result is beautifully scented wine with great balance between acid and alcohol.Grapes were harvested at low Brix in late April. The juice was fermented in stainlesssteel tanks to retain aromatic varietal character, with various different yeasts and atdifferent temperatures. The ferments were stopped before completion to retain a level ofnatural sweetness. The young wine was left on its yeast lees until blending.
