Introducing our 2020 Last Light Riesling
Are you a Riesling lover?We think Riesling is one of the most underrated varieties in New Zealand and when we share our Riesling at events like Winetopia, we love to see the surprise and smiles on attendees faces when they try it.Today, we are pleased to introduce you to our new release Bald Hills Last Light Central Otago Riesling 2020. This 5 Star off-dry Riesling is simply stunning!
The palate has a lush entry of nectarine, peach, apricot, passionfruit and grapefruit. Complex and balanced with a honeyed mid palate, a nice mineral vein and a long finish of pink grapefruit, lemon and lime.
Try matching this wine with Thai style dishes, seafood, salmon and cheeses. Or as Candice Chow recommends with Tom Yum Soup or spicy tomato risotto. Delicious!
Last Light Riesling
This image captures the light over our Bannockburn vineyard in the evening before harvest and this was our inspiration for naming this wine the 'Last Light Riesling'
. The fruit selected for this Riesling was hand harvested on 24 April 2020 from our 1 hectare block of Riesling which is ideally situated within our Bannockburn Vineyard to capture the last rays of sunlight from the setting sun. This is perfect for Riesling vines as the extra sunshine gives them optimal ripening to produce our desired flavours.
