A single vineyard Riesling from our own Te Muna Road site. Grown on the alluvial gravel terrace soils of the Martinborough Terrace during a perfect growing season for the district. A warm dry summer allowed fruit to ripen wonderfully, producing powerful opulent fruit with the floral, lime zest Riesling is renowned for. A dry style (4g/l residual sugar) has been created, ideally to be enjoyed as an aperitif for something to liven up the taste buds. It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir. Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully.
