2007

Waipara Hills Equinox Waipara Riesling 2007

$0.00

Delicate and elegant, this wine has been made to express the best of the season and the vineyards that is was made from. Fresh, crisp acidity combine with fruit sweetness and slight grapefruit pith characters to make a wine of interest and appeal.

Tasting Notes
Colour: 
Pale green/white gold.
Nose: 
Citrus blossom, mandarin and slight honey notes.
Palate: 
Smooth texture balanced with a fine acidity and slight grapefruit phenolics.
Serve: 
Slightly chilled (and with a second bottle!)
Suggested Food Match: 
Tandoori chicken tenderloins, toasted cashews, micro greens & lemon aioli, on toasted ciabatta.
Wine Analysis
Alc Vol: 
11.1 %
Acidity: 
8.1 g/l
Residual Sugar: 
30.0 g/l
Wine Background
Vineyard Region: 
All the fruit for this wine was selected from our Waipara Vineyards, 50% from The Home block and 50% from The Mound Vineyard.
Vintage Conditions: 
Early rains gave way to a growing season with moderate temperatures and plenty of sun. The Spring Equinox marks the start of every season with the awakening of the vines at budburst, leading through to the inescapable conclusion at the Autumn Equinox when the vine once again shuts down for the winter.
Grape Variety: 
100% Riesling
Maturation: 
This wine will evolve over the next 10 years, moving from the delicate fruit flavours and aromas to more complex characters of kero, wax and nuts.

Waipara Hills Equinox Waipara Pinot Gris 2007

$0.00

Early rains gave way to a growing season with moderate temperatures and plenty of sun. The Spring Equinox marks the start of every season with the awakening of the vines at budburst, leading through to the inescapable conclusion at the Autumn Equinox when the vine once again shuts down for the winter.

Tasting Notes
Colour: 
Pale straw
Nose: 
Delicate spice, ginger crunch and nashi pear.
Palate: 
Delicate pear and ginger/spice flavours, supported by good weight and viscosity combine to flow through the palate resulting in a lingering, unctuous finish.
Serve: 
Slightly chilled (and with a second bottle!)
Suggested Food Match: 
Asian pear salad complete with ginger, vanilla beans & baby greens
Wine Analysis
Alc Vol: 
13.7 %
Acidity: 
6.3 g/l
Residual Sugar: 
6.0 g/l
Wine Background
Vineyard Region: 
All the fruit for this wine came from the Home Block vineyard, grown by Jean-Luc Dufour and his crew.
Vintage Conditions: 
Early rains gave way to a growing season with moderate temperatures and plenty of sun.
Grape Variety: 
Pinot Gris
Maturation: 
Two fruit parcels were used for this wine, both were hand picked and whole bunch pressed. The best juice from this fruit was left to settle naturally and then half was fermented in old oak barrels, while the remainder was fermented in a stainless steel tank, these different methods increased greater complexity and interest in the wine.
