$52.00 inc. GST

5 stars – Bob Campbell
5 stars – Raymond Chan

“The mouthfeel is soft with some unctuousness, and smooth-flowing with delicate textures and crisp, underlying acidity. The wine flows with good energy and carries smoothly to a soft, honied finish with florals, musk and toast. This is as gently rich, sweet Riesling with citrus fruits, honey, and floral flavours, nuanced by complexing musky botrytis and a layer of secondary toastiness.” – Raymond Chan

Tasting Note: “Floral, spice, rose, orange blossom and apricot aromas. Rich, round and sweet on the palate with complex, ripe citrus flavours. Perfectly balanced acidity reigns in the residual sugar. The mid-harvest rains in the Waitaki brought with them a classic botrytis infection,most notably and desirably in the Riesling. As they say, ‘every cloud has it’s silver lining’; this wine is it.” – Grant Taylor
