We love Riesling as a variety for its purity, elegance and age ability and believe that our old vines (planted in late 70s/early 80s) combined with the growing conditions and climate here in Marlborough are capable of making world class Riesling. The fruit from these old vines has ripe fruit concentration and great structure as well as high natural acidity that lends itself very well to making a dry style of Riesling. All the grapes for this wine were hand-picked and hand -sorted. The fruit was then destemmed, not crushed, then air-bag pressed. A proportion of parcels were whole bunch pressed. Free run cut was made on taste at approximately 550lt/t.
