Winemaker's Notes

The warm sunny days and cool night of the Marlborough Region are ideally suited to ripening the Riesling grape. The 2004 season was long and late producing exquisitely flavoured, low yielding grapes.

Nice on its own or try it with Chinese style stir- fried chicken or sweet-and-sour pork.

The nose is greeted by a delicate, yet not shy, floral scent of orange blossom with hints of lime. The medium weighted palate is sweet fruited and juicy with apple/citrus flavours predominating over wild floral notes. An agreeable minerality lingers on the dry finish. This is an elegant and stylish wine with perfect balance.
