Valli Waitaki Riesling 2019

Valli Waitaki Vineyard Riesling

2019

“Freshly squeezed lime juice, Granny Smith apple with hints of chalk and jasmine flower on the nose awaken the palate to zesty lemon, lime, spicy white pepper and incredible earthiness that sings of limestone soils. The prominent acidity is beautifully balanced with bright citrus and a round mid palate with stoney freshness and salinity that gives the wine great length. Finely detailed and energetic, this wine is delicious on its own but will also pair wonderfully with fresh fish, seafood, summer salads, and light-medium spiced Indian or Thai cuisine. A fragrant and earthy wine, it will continue to develop for 10 + years showing more richness and secondary characteristics.”

"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 ives 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."

Valli Waitaki Riesling 2013

Valli Waitaki Vineyard Riesling 2013

“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.”
