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 Hosie vineyards in the Cromwell basin.

The juice from each batch was cool fermented separately in stainless steel vats to retain fruit character. The wine was left to ferment almost dry leaving 4g/l residual sugar and racked off yeast lees and blended to keep the wine fresh and focused.

The resulting is a mouthfilling wine with citrus, floral notes, a flinty mineral component, and refreshing acidity. A delectable dry style Riesling that lingers long on the palate
