Champion Riesling for 2015 Soul Deans at Bragato

The quality of aromatic wines being produced in the Waipara Valley has been reinforced once again, with the 2015 Waipara Hills Soul Deans Riesling taking home the Wohnsiedler Trophy for Champion Riesling at the recent Bragato Wine Awards.
 
The Soul Deans Riesling comes from grapes grown at our Deans Vineyard, this special block overlooks the sunny terraces of the Waipara River, with stunning views of Waipara Valley’s landmark hills the three Deans range.
 
Waipara Hills Vineyard Manager Jean-Luc Dufour said the vines and fruit of this vineyard are always a pleasure to work with.
 
“The soil and climate is perfect, and it’s this combination which allows us to craft this very special Riesling. The views here are breathtaking, there’s nothing I love more than being amongst the vines, watching the fruit evolve each year,” he said.  
 
With a hint of apple, lime and fresh herbs on the nose, this wine is fresh and alive. The vibrant lime flavours are balanced with a subtle sweetness and a long dry finish.
 
“We are thrilled to receive this Trophy, a strong acknowledgement of the great team work at Waipara Hills,” said Jean-Luc.
 
The New Zealand Winegrowers Romeo Bragato National Conference is one of the most important events on the New Zealand wine calendar.
 
The two-day conference is named after Romeo Bragato, whose pioneering work in the 19th Century formed the basis of modern New Zealand viticulture practices.
 
This event attracts an audience that traverses all aspects of the industry and provides an opportunity to keep up to speed with the latest research results, market trends and hot topics facing the industry.
 
There were 14 Trophies awarded at the Conference this year, acknowledging the top wines, vineyards and growers across a range of variety and styles.
