Colour:Very pale at bottling but with time this wine will pick up gold tints.Bouquet:Aromatic intensity looks set to be one of the hallmarks of the 2008 Marlborough Rieslings. This wine leaps from the glass with masses of citrus, citrus blossom and spice.Palate:This wine is subtle, yet concentrated and the acid and fruit sweetness are beautifully harmonious.
The Spring Creek vineyard from which this fruit is sourced is proving to be a stellar performer. Once again it has produced fruit of superb flavour and intensity. Only free-run juice was used to make this wine. This juice was in pristine condition and was both subtle and pure. As with previous vintages we used a yeast that goes by the name of Siha7. This yeast was isolated because of its unique ability to harness Riesling’s floral delicacy.
Riesling is the most versatile of all wines - an excellent refreshing aperitif and a great match to many food styles, from light salad based meals to spicy ethnic dishes and richer foods
