The Real Review


Awarded 93 Points

"Ripe, tangy riesling with lime, citrus, floral, wildflowers and a suggestion of spice and root ginger. Deliciously fresh with attractive sweet-and-sour tension. Very approachable now but with the potential to develop well in bottle."

2019 Vintage

Rated 19/20

"2019 vintage; a good year for aromatic whites. This one has a low-ish 9.5% ABV, is medium dry, with high acidity, a medium body and a long, flavoursome finish with juicy succulent mouthfeel. Ripe peach, green apples, limes and lemon zest flavours fill every succulent mouthful."

"Pretty, elegant and floral with light white blossom and lush red apple aromas. A sweet palate with plenty of acid backbone to hold everything in balance providing a delightful – almost irresistible – moreish quality to this wine. Quite insatiable."

Rated Very Good - Excellent

"Attractive nose of bush honey, apple & citrus. Apple, ripe peach, pear and honey flood the front palate with an initial quite sweet impression before the acidity rushes in, bringing this into the medium/medium dry spectrum. Aeration shows more primary fruit cordial notes and a softer mouth feel. This can only get better as the year progresses."

Awarded 93 Points,  5 Stars

"A delectably styled riesling; the fragrant bouquet shows honeydew melon, pineapple, crunchy apple and citrus peel aromas, followed by a succulent palate offering attractive sweetness backed by refreshing acidity, making it tasty and lingering. Very friendly and easy to enjoy. Style: Medium. At its best: now to 2025."

Made With Care

We select the finest parcels of Riesling from two of New Zealand's most renowned Riesling-growing regions - Marlborough and Waipara.

Juice was fermented in separate vineyard batches, mostly at cool temperatures. We used a selection of different yeasts to amplify the regional characteristics of the Marlborough portion of the blend.


Our winemakers tasted each parcel daily and stopped the ferment when the acid/sugar/alcohol balance was reached and when the aromas of spice and exotic tropical notes were present. Stopping the ferment early retains natural sugar which creates the beautiful off-dry element of this wine. Following blending this Riesling is kept on light lees until bottling, ensuring flavour intensity.
