Riesling - Liquid Geography

Riesling - Liquid Geography

$22.00

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

This is a sweeter style wine - we leave the fruit on the vine longer  to develop concentration and late harvest character (5% botrytis). This honeycomb flavour is beautifully balanced with fresh citrus characters.

2018 - Liquid Geography

Tasting notes

Deeply layered aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits, along withhoney and yellow stonefruits. Medium in style, the palate is rich and lusciously opulent with exotic, ripe citrus and tropical fruits entwined with honey and marmalade.

Wine list

Albarino

Hails from the cool climate of Galacia, a region situated in the northwest of Spain. Planted in 2013 it is settling into our site extremely well. We think it has huge potential.

Pinot Gris

We aim to produce a rich, complex, aromatic style. Cropping levels are kept low to ensure the fruit is concentrated. Varietal flavours are accumulated through hang time on the vines well into Autumn.

Pinot Noir

The combination of our meticulous hand work and ancient mineral soils gives a depth of dark fruit with layers of earthy complexity and spice.

Riesling - Liquid Geography

Of all the whites grapes Riesling tends to change its character according to the landscape in which it is grown. Therefore, it can be thought of as 'Liquid Geography".

Rosé

This Rose is unique because it is made from mostly Syrah grapes. This gives the wine a silken texture and spicy notes. It also has the classic strawberries and cream flavours.

Saint Laurent

Genetically it is thought to be a ‘wild cousin’ of Pinot Noir. Also known as a ‘gentle giant’ – this is because the wine is big in colour but on the palate it’s gentle with beautiful smooth, silky tannins.

Syrah

Syrah is a favoured variety at Terrace Edge. The unique site lends itself to high quality production. We are rewarded with a complex wine, with spice, velvety tannins and great finesse.

Riesling - Classic

The aim with our 'classic' is to make a wine which has varietal purity. It's just off-dry with beautiful citrus characters.
