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 2018 is a stunning, off-dry Riesling with vibrant aromas of lemon, lime zest, honey and hints of orange blossom.
The palate is beautifully balanced with sweet tangelo, apricot, melon, lemon and honey. Complex and concentrated with crisp acidity, this Riesling has a nice long finish.
Try matching this wine with Thai style dishes, seafood, salmon and cheeses.
" There’s no mistaking this is Riesling with aromas of lime and mandarin, kaffir-lime leaf and rose apple scents. There’s a sense of place too with a the cool stony soil of Otago punching through the fruit. On the palate - vibrant, fresh, fleshy, off-dry, fruity and delicious. Flavours mirror the nose with a fresh salivating acidity and mineral core. Balanced and well made. Best drinking from today and through 2024+." Cameron Douglas MS (92 Points)
