2016 Riesling


Home Block vineyard at our winery site on the South bank of the Waikato River. The loam soils of the site are interspersed with river gravels which creates potential for strong canopies but with good soil drainage. This Riesling is a portion of the block from behind the winery.

Ripe fruit was gently pressed to tank and cold settled for around 48 hours prior to racking. The clear juice was inoculated and cool fermented until each parcel tasted in balance. The wine was allowed to rest on lees for three months with lees stirring on selected tanks. Immediately prior to bottling the wine was carefully blended, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note
This is a beautiful fresh Riesling with aromas of limes and mandarin with subtle peach notes. The palate has well balanced acidity and finishes with a touch of sweetness.

Food Matching
Great for afternoon sipping or match with fruit, cheese, salads, seafood or smoked and cured meats.
