This wine was produced from grapes grown on our WaihopaiValley vineyard. The free draining soils and a unique microclimate have produced is elegant Riesling with wonderful floral aromatics, with lemon, lime and rich stone fruit flavours. A lovely texture, minerality and crisp acidity make for a harmonious palate.

Decanter World Wine Awards - Bronze Medal
WineNZ magazine - THREE AND A HALF STARS
Pale in colour. A restrained floral nose with some lemony notes, along with hints of jasmine. The palate is finely structured, tight and linear with very pure lime juice flavours and a pleasing firm mouthfeel. Not all that complex(2012), but does show nice concentration on the palate with balanced acidity and good length.
