Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale lemon and lime, indicative of its cool climate origins.

Aroma

Finely scented perfume talc nose, characterized by guava, vanilla bean and citrus peel fruit aromas, all with the subtle tones of Lemongrass, pineapple and apple blossom which is nicely interwoven with natural cool climate acidity giving distinctive flinty mineral notes.

Palate

Mineral rich flavours, The palate is elegant and refined very subtle guava, nicely integrated candy lemon peel, tangy lime juice, and flavours of pineapple and pears. The over all balance of the wine is tight crisp and dry, with a distinct quartz mineral edge. The light skin tannin from some maceration offering structure and the tight expressive acid tones lifting and providing complexity on the finish.

Cellaring Potential

Pipers Brook Rieslings is known for its aging potential and will develop wonderful soft honey toasty characters with age, also drinking beautifully as a fresh crisp young aromatic wine. A likely life span through to 2016 or beyond, with the best years being 2010-2015.

Food Matching

In its youth the wine is superb with lightly spiced vegetable dishes, braised Belgium endive au Gratin, asparagus with Parmesan shavings and balsamic vinaigrette. Thai pork stir-fry, however with some bottle age it matches beautifully with salt and pepper squid, oysters with limejuice, canapé-sized whitebait fritters, Thai or Asian cuisine, and lemon chicken salad.
