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