Valli Waitaki Vineyard Riesling

Valli Waitaki Vineyard Riesling

"Freshly squeezed lime juice and lemon zest with jasmine flowers on the nose awaken the palate to flavours of rich citrus, ripe apple and incredible limey acidity which gives the wine great length. This Riesling is exquisitely balanced and wonderful on its own, but it will also pair beautifully with summer salads, fresh fish, seafood and light-medium spiced Indian or Thai cuisine. A fresh and fragrant young wine, it will continue to develop for 10+ years showing more richness and secondary characteristics."

“Bursting with floral stone fruit notes: white peach, nectarine and honeysuckle. A little residual sweetness makes entry on the palate rich and full, but this is immediately reigned in by the region’s characteristic acidity. The palate becomes a battle for dominance between acidity and sweetness, which seems to go on forever carrying flavours with it. In true Waitaki style, this wine is all about tension and balance.”
