Bay and Barnes (Marlborough/Waipara) 2020 Riesling

A Riesling which brings together outstanding fruit from two of New Zealand’s pre-eminent growing areas – Marlborough and Waipara. 

Following harvest, parcels of fruit were gently pressed before settling for 36 hours. From there the juice was racked and underwent cool temperature fermentation. Our winemakers tasted throughout the ferment to ensure they stopped it when the wine achieved the perfect balance of flavours.

Giesen Estate (NZ) 2021 Riesling

Gold Medal - Melbourne International wine competition
 
This Riesling has become a New Zealand legend, highly awarded and the country’s number one seller. It’s not surprising given its striking notes of lime and mandarin and its delicious, succulent juicy sweetness finished with a clean acid backbone. 

The 2021 Estate Riesling is a blend from two of New Zealand’s outstanding cool climate grape growing regions. Waipara, with its cool, dry climate and good sunshine and Marlborough, renowned for its long warm days and cool evenings. With yields down in both regions, the remaining grapes enjoyed a long growing season helped by settled weather leading into harvest. The 2021 vintage will be long remembered as an outstanding vintage, with wines bursting with concentrated flavours.

Giesen Gemstone (Marlborough) 2020 Riesling

5 Stars, No.1 & Best Buy Cuisine Riesling Tasting, February 2021 (2018 Vintage)

"Giesen are known for excellent Riesling, with a reputation for producing the top selling Riesling in New Zealand. Thanks to the bounty of the 2020 harvest we have been able to create a unique, limited release Riesling using grapes from Awatere Valley. We fermented and matured a portion of the blend in granite.

Expect elderflower and lime on the nose with subtle tropical fruit. The palate bursts with sweet mandarin and lemon sherbet. Tight acidity gives the wine a delicious raciness, while the textured palate and residual sweetness provide richness and a finish that is balanced and moreish."

This wee Gem of a wine sure packs a punch!

Luscious aromas of citrus, crisp apple, pear and floral notes, the delicious palate shows intense, tight flavous of lemon / apple and honeysuckle. A stunning wine from a sensational vintage, this off-dry beauty is drinking well now to 2030!

A perfect aperitif or well matched with cheese.

Konrad (Marlborough) 2014 Bunch Select Riesling

4 Stars - Cuisine New Zealand

Aged Riesling Bargain!!

The ripest bunches are selectively hand picked in small batches from the family owned Waihopai Valley site. Soil in the vineyard is of stony silt with loam topsoil and free draining. Canopy Management is vertical shoot positioning with shoot and crop thinning.

This wine is made in a deliberately low alcohol style and is perfect for Asian cuisine, or spicy seafood dishes

When Konrad Hengstler began planting wines in the Waihopai Valley in 1996, it didn’t take him long to shake hands with his German neighbours. Konrad and the Giesen brothers bonded over their shared heritage, early role in the Marlborough wine industry, and their absolute commitment to quality. Decades and many shared handshakes later, he could think of no better people to partner with in his retirement.

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 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.

Terrace Edge (Waipara) 2020 Liquid Geography Riesling

CHAMPION RIESLING & GOLD MEDAL NZ - Organic Wine Awards 2021
Five stars - 95/100 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Five stars 18.5/20 - Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Bright, even, straw-yellow with some depth. The nose is elegant, and poise, mouthwatering minerals, citrus fill the glass, along with an array of calming florals. Med-sweet to taste, medium-bodied, bright aromas of lime, mandarin has a taut core and mouthwatering; lime flowers unveil along with delicate spice, and crunchy minerals flow with tension to a long, lingering finish. The fruit is gentle and aromatic, grows in concentration; thirst-quenching taut acid cut provides balance to the sweetness and drives to a sustained finish. This is a medium-sweet, fragrant Riesling with a tight core of citrus, floral details and lengthy mineral tension."


If ever there was a cult wine, this is it!
Heaven. Signature wine for Terrace Edge this Riesling leans much more towards the richer, sweeter style.

Bootiful!
