Marlborough Riesling 2010 >Winery Only<

TROPHY, 2012 MARLBOROUGH WINE AWARDS, Gold Medals, MWA 2012, Royal Easter Show Wine Awards 2012 & Spiegelau International Wine Competition 2011. "A lovely youthful wine displaying green apple, lemon/lime, floral and subtle chalky characters on the nose. It's finely textured on the palate with crisp acidity and a beautifully flowing mouthfeel. The wine shows classic elegant Riesling structure and a lengthy finish."
Winemakers Notes
This wine is based on fruit from a high performing vineyard at Spring Creek on the Wairau Plains.  This is supplemented with a small parcel of fruit from a vineyard at the mouth of the Omaka Valley. Both vineyards produce fruit of exceptional purity and focus. Spring and summer in Marlborough were warm and settled and this allowed us to harvest well ripened and flavoursome fruit. Cool fermentation with a yeast strain that is known to amplify Riesling’s lovely citrus and floral aromas (Siha7) has given us a dry wine of great poise and beauty. We have consciously bottled this wine while young, fresh and focused.

Alc 12.5%
Acid 9.1g/L
Res sugar 7.5
pH 3.01

Tasting Notes
Colour: Very pale at bottling but with time this wine will pick up green-gold tints.
Bouquet: Aromatic intensity looks set to be one of the hallmarks of the 2009 Marlborough Rieslings. This wine leaps from the glass with masses of citrus, citrus blossom and spice.
Palate: Medium bodied and beautifully fine with a perfect balance between acid and sugar. The finish is long and pure.

This wine can already be consumed with pleasure, but will age gracefully over the next few years if cellared correctly.
Food Matches
Riesling is the most versatile of all wines - an excellent refreshing aperitif and a great match to many food styles, from light salad based meals to spicy ethnic dishes and richer foods.
Independent Reviewer’s Coment
“A beautifully expressed Riesling with lime, grapefruit, floral and peach characters on the nose. The palate is juicy and lively with a touch of sweetness and a lingering crisp finish. A lovely dry Riesling showing plenty of appealing flavours, offering amazing value for money.” SK
