Mystery Creek Riesling
The Riesling for this wine is grown on our Home Block vineyard at our winery site on the South bank of the Waikato River. The loam soils of the site are interspersed with river gravels which creates potential for strong canopies but with good soil drainage. 2014 was characterised by a warm, dry growing season which allowed good fruit ripening and low disease pressure.
The varietal characters of lemon and lime citrus are balanced by the off-dry sweetness and the soft mouthfeel. A vibrant and refreshing Riesling.
Best with citrus seasoned salads or seafood dishes. Also will complement salty dishes.
Total Sugars: 9.79 g/L
Hand picked fruit was destemmed and lightly crushed before a gentle pressing. A mix of stainless steel and large format oak puncheons were used for fermentation to provide a blend of aromatic intensity and complexity.
