Product Description

This medium-sweet Riesling, inspired by the Spätlese wines of Germany, is produced from Rockburn's Parkburn (Cromwell Basin) Vineyard. Apricots and mandarin juice dominate the nose of this wine in its youth, and the palate is filled with lively notes of tangerine and lime. The immaculately balanced rich sweetness and fine acidity are brought to completion by a very long and cleansing finish. Easily enjoyed as an aperitif, or with long lunches, cheese, white meat or delicate seafood dishes, this wine will continue to evolve over the next decade.

"Made from grapes harvested in Rockburn's own vineyard at Parkburn on the Cromwell basin. The grapes were picked without any botrytis infection and the wine fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was stopped to retain 41g/l residual sugar giving a moderately sweet spatlese style. Pristine, pure lime and mineral flavours with sweetness balanced by fine acidity give the wine terrific tension. Very impressive with that should develop well but is deliciously drinkable now."
