Te Whare Ra (Marlborough) 2019 Med Riesling
Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2019
"Really lovely bouquet of Riesling – perfumed with fruit and flowers, lime-flower, peach, apple and green tea. Tense, lively, crisp and fruity on the palate reflecting the flowers and fruit flavours from the nose. No mistaking the how the texture dances around the palate with acidity and residual sweetness. This medium-style Riesling is delicious, a great example for pairing with food or just on its own as an aperitif. Drink from today and through 2026+."
5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2019
"This is gorgeously expressed on the nose showing Gala apple, apricot, lemon peel and floral aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that's bright and refreshing. The wine delivers excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, wonderfully enhanced by subtle sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity, finishing long and delicious. Certified organic. Style: Medium-dry. At its best: now to 2031."
This Riesling ‘M’ is designed from the “vineyard-in” in a medium-dry style and is dangerously drinkable. Lifted aromas of mandarin, pink grapefruit, and white peach follow onto vibrant, ripe flavours of the same with juicy lime with underlying slatey mineral notes. This wine is fleshy with excellent fruit weight and concentration to counterbalance the mouth-watering juicy acidity
Delicious to drink now and will also benefit from careful cellaring for 4-8+ years for those who prefer their Riesling with some bottle age.
