The 2014 Estate Riesling is a medium sweet style, bringing together outstanding fruit from three of New Zealand’s preeminent Riesling areas – Marlborough, Waipara and Nelson. Succulent citrus and orange blossom flavors are kept in check by delightfully refreshing acidity.
The 2013/14 growing season started as one of the hottest on record with rapid, yet even growth, good flowering and fruit set. Then it changed! From late December through to the end of February it was cooler than average. However, the vineyards still achieved good berry development. March heralded another change, when it was warmer than the norm which provided development of flavor and concentration.
