COLOUR: Honey Yellow

NOSE: Honey, marmalade, apricots and raisons all indicate a classic Noble Riesling nose with plenty of life. The nose is rich and powerful, almost jumping out of the glass to meet you. Intense aromas of dried apricots are lifted by an attractive volatile character, typical of this style, that complements the honey-like aromatics. 

PALATE: Aged wine, fully developed by sight with nice acidity that holds and balances the sweetness. The palate has the same fruit characteristics of the nose but rich and viscous. The impact of this wine has been created by the high residual sugar and intensity of fruit flavour created by the concentration of the juice during the drying period on the vine. 

REGION: 100% Waipara, North Canterbury

VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The 2017 season in Waipara was of average heat with moderate rainfall. The exception being in April where heavy rain was received causing some issues for certain varieties. However, the wet created perfect conditions for the development of the Botrytis fungus essential for the production of this wine style. Dry conditions in May ensured the infected berries dried out perfectly.

WINEMAKING: Hand harvesting along with careful bunch selection was followed by gentle whole-bunch pressing of the fruit. Fermentation of the clear juice was slow, in part due to the impact of the high sugar level on the vigour of the yeast. The wine was also kept at a low temperature to ensure the aromatic elements were perfectly captured. The fermentation was arrested by chilling the wine to below zero which left a considerable amount of sugar in the wine. Minimal fining was done to assist with retaining the maximum flavours.
