  • Dry River Craighall Riesling 2018 NZD $59.95 NZD $49.95
    “The pale golden colour reflects that of freshness and rigor. Tropical peach and kiwifruit characters reflect the warmer vintage in 2018. However, since we picked this very early - 14 March, we were able to maintain the subtle fragrancies we seek out in Riesling; lime sherbet, lemon zest and apple blossom. The additional benefit of an early harvest is that we retain a strong mineral acidity, which manifests on the nose in the form of wet river rocks and citrus blossom. The palate follows a similar pattern to the nose: dense with a touch of sweetness at the entrance which makes it feel broad, with ripe fruit flavours. We often see the more tropical influence from our Craighall block 5 Riesling, which is planted with a better aspect to the sun. Craighall block 6 Riesling is planted perpendicular to block 5, east/west, causing more shading of the fruit. This brings out a palate that is long and drawn out with chalky phenolics which highlight the textural feel of the wine. The acidity creates a fresh tension to firm up the wine and show a linear and horizontal structure. This firm acidity helps to salivate the mouth and drive the wine creating a long finish, which makes it a good food matching wine. Expect this wine to further evolve for optimal drinking pleasure after three to five years.”... more »
