TASTING NOTE:The 2005 harvest provided the perfect conditions to make premium Riesling, with cooler than normal temperatures retaining fruit characters and acidity.

The fruit was carefully hand harvested from the Northburn, Aurora and the Two Sisters vineyards in the Cromwell basin.

The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel vats to retain fruit character. The wine was stopped from fermenting to leave 15g/l residual sugar to balance the acidity and racked off yeast lees to keep the wine fresh and focused.

The resulting is a vibrant wine with limes, a flinty mineral component, natural sweetness and refreshing acidity.

The 2005 Peregrine Rastasburn Riesling is a luscious medium style Riesling that lingers long on the palate.
