Tasting Notes

Riesling grapes are well suited to the Marlborough climate due to cooler autumn temperatures and cold nights intensifying acidity and fruit flavours. This 2018 Cellar Selection Dry Riesling has pure aromas of lime zest, grapefruit and fresh spring blossoms. On the palate, a sherbet-like zingy acidity leads to flavours of mandarin, lemon and white peach and a hint of graphite minerality giving the wine length and freshness.

The perfect aperitif wine, or serve with fresh shellfish dishes.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. The 2018 growing season started with excellent
spring and a strong flowering period which was followed by a long spell of hot weather with regular rainfall events through the summer months. With ample soil moisture, our harvest started earlier than
the previous two vintages, luckily the cooler autumn weather helped retain natural acidities as the season progressed.
