|Tongue in the Groove
A gorgeous bouquet of orange blossom, the essence of mandarin juice spraying as the skin is removed, grapefruit and warm stone fruit abound on the nose. The palate is rich and full with excellent weight and power; very indicative of these two vineyards and the growing season. The acid is perfectly balanced giving freshness, balance and length to the wine. All of this has resulted in a style that follows the new wave of drier, rich, fuller bodied Rieslings that are incredibly drinkable. One glass immediately leads to another and soon one is left wishing for another bottle. The structure and concentration of this wine will allow 10 plus years of bottle age.
The Waipara Valley is the spiritual home of Riesling in New Zealand. It’s not surprising then that it’s attracted some of the most eccentric, passionate, obsessed Riesling freaks on the planet. We fill our cellars and glasses with the avant-garde of the old world including Heymann Lӧwenstein, Clemens Busch, FX Pichler and Franz Hertzberger.
They’re not interested in necessarily fitting neatly inside your ‘Riesling box’, and they don’t understand the new world obsession with dryness at any cost. Instead they're on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land of balance, texture and the expression of the vineyard.
