19.00 750 ml

AWARDS & ACCOLADES:
Silver – Royal Easter Show Wine Awards 2015 (NZ)
Silver – Spiegelau International Wine Competition 2015 (NZ)

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT:
Very clean and pure aromas of white flowers, lime zest and white peach. The palate has fresh grapefruit flavours, juicy acidity balanced by riper mandarin and honeysuckle notes. The finish is refreshing with a fine persistent line of acidity.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:
Superb with summer salads or Asian inspired cuisine.

VINEYARD & WINEMAKING:
The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours, but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. Riesling grapes were harvested between March until April. Riesling grapes are well suited to Marlborough climate due to cooler autumn temperatures and cold nights intensifying acidity and pure fruit flavours.

FRUIT HANDLING:
Mixture of hand picked, whole bunch pressed fruit and machine picked fruit during night when fruit is cool to retain aromatics.
