Waipara Hills Equinox Late Harvest Riesling NV

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

Clover honey, pineapple, vanilla pod and dried apricot aromas lead to a rich decadent sweet spectrum of flavours with a hint of oak. Fresh acidity and lingering flavours make this luscious wine seem remarkably fresh and light. This wine is really over the top. Decadent, rich sweetnes. Intense lifted fruit. Bold and structured acidity. A small amount goes a long way, yet lingering flavours really get you coming back for another try.

MATURATION

We pressed frozen fruit to get the concentrated flavours, then after a carefully monitored fermentation in tank the wine was racked to a mixture of barrels for maturation. The blend is a mixture of previous vintage wines, all adding different characters and textures. The 2009 was aged in barrels for 36 months, 2010 was in barrels for about 28 months, 2011 for 16 months and 2012 for 4 months.
