Vavasour Riesling 2017 750ml


Vavasour Riesling 2017 750ml

The cool weather of the Awatere Valley brings out bright floral and citrus in the 2017 Riesling. Crisp aromas of freshly squeezed lime and citrus blossoms highlight the nose. The palate is a beautiful balance between a lively citrus acidity and a lingering soft minerality.

Awatere valley wines are particularly prized for their intense aromatics, ripe flavours, dynamic textures and concentration. The fruit for the 2017 Riesling was harvested from the estate vineyard in the Awatere Valley. A combination of canopy and yield management ensured great concentration and flavour in the fruit. The fruit for the Riesling was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains and spent 6 months on the lees, allowing retention of the vibrant fruit flavours of the variety. As a result, this wine has a lovely mix of freshness, richness and complexity.

Alc: 12%
