Riesling - Zephyr - Marborough - New Zealand
A pretty simple process - hand picked bright pale green fruit - not too much golden sun burn. Gentle whole bunch pressed - Cold and the free run kept separate to ensure vibrancy. Fined as juice, and left to settle at for a week before being racked off warmed and fermented with inoculated yeast - long and slow to ensure a ripe phenolic texture and elegant aromas - then on cold again for 4 weeks before being prepped for bottling in late August.
Pale straw with a green hue. Aromas of ginger and green apple and a mouthwatering citrussy palate showing varietal elegance.
Perfect with salads, seafood and sashimi.
