The fruit selected for this Riesling has been hand-picked from one hectare of vines that are ideally situated to soak up the 'last light' from the day's sun, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, intensifying the fruit flavours.

Our 'Last Light' Central Otago Riesling 2020 is a stunning, off-dry Riesling with vibrant aromas of honeysuckle, freesia, apple blossom, lemon, tangelo and a hint of vanilla brulee.

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. 

 

Awards

"This is a vigorous, intense Riesling with citrus tension, floral detail on a textural palate and a crisp finish. Match with tom yum and spicy tomato risotto over the next 4+ years." Candice Chow at Raymond Chan Wine Reviews (5 Stars)

"Beautifully fruited and elegantly perfumed, the wine shows red cherry, ripe strawberry, lemon peel and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a delightfully refreshing palate that’s filled with bright fruit flavours backed by crisp acidity, finishing long and lively." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (95 Points)
