Our Dry Riesling has lashings of lime and lemons and hints of honey and zesty spice and a lovely palate richness and length. Tropical fruit flavours also emerge to linger together with the lime on the palates finish. This wine will develop honey and kerosene like characters with age.

Winery Tasting Notes
Intense aromatics with citrus and grapefruit complexed with hints of honey and spice.
Explosion of fruit flavours, citrus, honey and even some peach. Great minerality in the wine is balanced with a hint of sweetness.
Great now and can only get better. Will keep up to 15 years with careful cellaring.
An ideal aperitif or suited to delicate fusion foods.
The grapes for this wine come from three vineyards in the Marlborough area and each has left a distinctive imprint on the wine. The Anderson Vineyard in the Brancott Valley brings lemon
and lime aromas; the Ellin vineyard, due to the cool late ripening Dog Point area gives a great minerality; and the Cole’s vineyard on Wratts Road with its heavy soil, add flesh and weight to
