We had always been inspired by the great wines of the Mosel and when tasting the fruit from this block at Te Whare Ra, we thought that the flavour profile and acid balance, lent itself well to this medium-dry style of Riesling. We love the knife edge of tension in this style of wine – the perfect balance between the initial sweetness of the fruit and the lingering, chalky acidity.
Our passion for making and drinking Riesling is based partly on the wide variety of styles that this variety is capable of producing. That array of styles is a double edged sword for some, but we feel that by labeling our Rieslings true to type we can encourage the Riesling revolution. We are enamoured by the general characteristics of all great Riesling wines: purity, elegance and age-ability and feel that the growing conditions here in Marlborough allow Riesling to produce at its best – it really is an unsung hero variety for this part of the world. The high sunshine hours mean that we are able to achieve ripe, fruit concentration and the cooler night time temperatures mean that we retain the natural acidity that is the hallmark of this noble variety.
Cameron Douglas MS – 97 Points Stunning aromatics with wild white flowers and blossoms, mandarin and lime flower, lemon peel, apple and citrus pith. There are lifted spice layers and core of minerality. All of these ideas come alive on the palate with a seamless core of pure fruit flavours, minerals, flowers and exotic charm. Off-dry in style the acidity more than contrasts the initial sweetness and adds to a refreshing lengthy finish. this is what Riesling is all about. Fantastic example ready to enjoy from today and through 2030+.
