This wine will become our spätlese/medium riesling, and we are offering a special price on this stock with our old look.
The grapes for this wine were grown on our home vineyard, Astrolabe Farm. We farm organically and without the use of irrigation.
Fresh apples, lime juice and lemon zest, with aromatic citrus flower in the background.
Zingy, fresh ripe lime and lemon flavours, crisp apples and a long and clean zesty finish.
This wine will continue to develop with cellaring.
Try with crustaceans such as lobster mornay, white fish like sole and flounder, or Thai salads.
RIESLING SERVING TEMPERATURE
“Attractive medium-dry riesling, with restrained lusciousness and apple, lime, floral, chalky, mineral and white peach flavours. Tangy wine with ripe, fruity acidity giving a pleasing tension. Drink 2019-2025.” JAN 19

The Real Review © The Real Review
“The 2017 vintage was grown at Grovetown, in the lower Wairau Valley, and made in a medium style (42 grams/litre of residual sugar). Light and lively, it has intense, citrusy flavours, a slightly minerally streak, and excellent richness, vigour and harmony. Already delicious, it’s a drink-now or cellaring proposition. Drink 2019-2030."
