Wine Background
Vineyard Region: 
The Riesling grapes for this wine were sourced from our own vineyards in Waipara, North Canterbury. Both vineyards are situated on the banks of the Waipara River, the Glasnevin vineyard soils consist of river deposited stony silt loams giving excellent minerality. The Mound (to the west) has free draining silt loams over stones and has produced some of the finest Riesling fruit in the Waipara region.
Vintage Conditions: 
Waipara has had a cracker of a harvest two years in a row, an unusual occurrence for the region. In fact, we’re thinking of renaming our vineyard ‘LUCKY’, after it managed to avoid fruit damage from not only the frosty start to the season, but also a freak hail storm. Once the weather warmed up the ripening season was glorious, with very hot temperatures during the day, and fresh cool evenings. The entire crop was thinned to ensure even ripening and intense flavour accumulation. It was a long harvest, starting early and finishing late, but we’re very happy with the results, it’s what we call a ripper of a year!
Grape Variety: 
100% Waipara Riesling
Maturation: 
To retain the fresh fruit characters of this wine it was fermented and matured in 100% stainless steel tanks.
