Product Description

"Lifted aromas of jasmine, fresh lemon, Kaffir lime leaf and mandarin follow on to the plate. Therse flovours of fresh lime juice, lemon sorbet and ripe grapefruit with hints of floral spice are balanced by fine backbone of ripe acidity. This Riesling is a dry style which has excellent fruit weight and concentration to balance the lingering mineral acid structure. This wine is finely structured with great length of flavour.

2013 was an exceptional vintage in Marlborough, characterised by a textbook summer, and very even ripening. This 2013 Riesling 'D' is drinking well now and will also benefit from careful cellaring for 6-8+ years." Winemaker's Note


REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Te Whare Ra Riesling 'D' Dry 2011
Pristine and pure Riesling with lovely chalky mineral and lime/citrus flavours. Fine, fruity acidity drives a lingering finish. This has the tautness and minerality more typical of Central Otago wines. Very impressive.
