TASTING NOTE:The fruit for this wine came from the Northburn, Aurora, Ramsay and Dunbar vineyards in the Cromwell basin. The 2006 vintage was early and warm giving a more perfume and floral Riesling fruit rather than the more citrus and mineral we usually work with.
The fruit was carefully hand harvested between the 22nd of March and the 10th of April de-stemmed, crushed and gently pressed to tank for cold settling.
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 5g/l residual sugar and racked off yeast lees and blended to keep the wine fresh and focused.
The resulting is a mouth filling wine with a lifted ripe perfume, floral notes, and a small influence of citrus. The wine has a perfect balance of fruit sweetness and acidity.
The 2006 Peregrine Riesling is a delectable dry style Riesling that lingers long on the palate.
