SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE 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.
