VILLA MARIA, PRIVATE BIN RIESLING

15.00 750 ml

TASTING NOTES:
A bright steely aroma intertwined with lemon and lime is accentuated by attractive apricot nuances. The palate is light and crisp showing juicy grapefruit and mandarin flavours with a hint of ginger spice. This concentrated wine shows excellent fruit sweetness, subtle mineral notes, well balanced acidity, and a smooth oily textural finish.

FOOD PAIRING:
Great as an café apéritif or serve with lightly spiced Asian cuisine.

VINEYARD & WINEMAKING:
The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours, but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. In 2015, Marlborough had a warmer than usual spring, followed by a temperate summer. All Riesling grapes were machine harvested between early March until mid April in cool autumn conditions.

FRUIT HANDLING:
Machine harvested and destemmed in the vineyard during cool conditions to retain aromatics.
