Waipara Hills is in Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough.
“Aromas of green apple and lemon, some dried herb and mineral. Dry on the palate with flavours from the nose, firmly textured and focused. Youthful with a specific flavour package. Best served with food. Drink from 2019 through 2026” Cameron Douglas, Jun 2018
Pale green and straw in the glass with a bouquet bursting with aromas of red apple, lime and juice mandarin. Palate shows flavours of red apple and lime flow from the first sip. A bold and rich style of Riesling which delivers a crisp and lingering finish.
Sourced from The Mound and Deans vineyards in the Waipara Valley. Situated on the south side of the Waipara River with deep free-draining gravels and a
light loam top soil.
Parcles were harvested and brought directly into the winery for immediate pressing, whilst 10% were left to soak on skins for 12 hours. The juice was left to settle until clean, then racked, warmed and inoculated with yeasts. Fermentation stopped when sweetness levels balanced nicely. The wine was cooled for amonth, then racked to mature. Finally the wine was blended and fined using traditional methods.
Food Pairing: Barbequed pork marinated in lime juice
