The combination of fine days and cool nights typical of Marlborough during late summer/autumn is ideal for the later ripening Riesling. The result is beautifully scented wine with great balance between acid and alcohol.
An excellent partner to a wide range of foods, ideal with Asian dishes, or try it with mussel and kumara patties, drizzled with home-made lime-spiked mayonnaise.
The aroma of orange blossom and red apple leap readily from the glass with just a hint of lime/citrus. The citrus notes move to the fore of the palate with green gauge and apple. A good acid backbone moderates the upfront sweetness and leaves the wine with a crisp dry finish.
