We, along with many others believe the Waipara Valley to be a very special place for riesling.

The warm days and cool nights provide ripe, rich fruit while also retaining fresh citrus characters. Cool fermentation of optimally ripened grapes fills this wine with beautiful aromas of honey and lime while the palate is refreshing and crisp.

2013 - Liquid Geography

Tasting notes

Whole-cluster pressed to minimise extraction of phenolics. After overnight settling, the juice was racked off gross lees. Fermentation was with selected yeast in stainless steel at low temperatures to retain its vibrancy. It was handled very gently at all times to keep some CO2 spritzig in the wine to maintain freshness.

2012 - Classic

Tasting notes

It’s beautifully light and elegant with delicate aromas of white peach, lemon zest and floral. The palate is precise and focused with whispering sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity. This is a very smooth and harmonious, off-dry Riesling developing complex honey and toasty notes.
