ORDER WINE

A single vineyard Riesling from our own Te Muna Road
site. Grown on the alluvial gravel terrace soils of the Martinborough Terrace during a perfect growing season for the district.

A smaller crop and warm dry summer allowed fruit to ripen wonderfully, producing powerful opulent wine with the lime oral zest Riesling is renowned for.

After many years of traditional stainless steel fermentation we have decided to evolve our Riesling approach to include barrel fermentation and lees contact, enhancing texture
and mouth feel. A dry style (3g/l residual sugar) has been created, ideally to be enjoyed as an aperitif for something to liven up the taste buds.

It is an accurate re ection of Martinborough’s unique terroir. Cellar for up to ve years or more, successfully.
