Vineyard of the Year – NZ Organic Wine Awards

5 Stars 94 Points- Candice Chow
"Bright, pale yellow-gold, even colour throughout. The nose is delicate and soft, nuances of floral, lime and apricot are vibrant, along with a light honey note and crunchy minerals. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, savoury aromas of apricot and lime is moreish, interwoven with citrus peels and white spices, mouthwatering mineral lingers to a refreshing finish. The fruit has good concentration and purity. The fruit's savouriness balanced out the taut acid, with good tension and focus; positive citrus peel bitterness and white spices added interest, lends a long finish to savour. This is an intensely lime-apricot flavoured Riesling with balanced taut acid and sugar with lingering savouriness. Match with scallops and black pudding over the next 6+ years. Clean fruit, no botrytis, stainless steel fermented to 12.5% alc, 12.5 g/l RS. BioGro organic certified. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $24"

Terrace Edge have quietly gained a fine reputation for their wines from their organic Waipara Vineyard. The 2021 vintage gave beautifully ripe fruit and this is totally evident here. Just off-dry, this is in the classic Waipara style, bursting with fruity deliciousness. We say – 'drink more Riesling!'

On the nose this wine shows Gala apple, lemon zest and lime characters with nuances of floral and spice. The palate delivers excellent concentration and focus together with a beautifully flowing mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by whispering sweetness and crisp acidity
 
This is NZ Riesling at its best!
