Waimea 'Spinyback' Riesling, Nelson

[15 items are in stock]

Situated just around the north coast from New Zealand's Marlborough, Nelson sets itself apart from its counterpart by being comprised solely of family owned wineries. Waimea Estate is no exception. Established in 1993 by Trevor Bolitho and his wife Robyn, the boutique estate is comprised of 140 hectares of vineyards as well as long-term contract growers managed by their son Ben, head viticulturist. Steven Spurrier describes the region as 'home to New Zealand's finest aromatic wines,' where ancient free-draining stony loam river plains, moderate maritime influence and protective phalanx of hills create the perfect terroir to produce 'an evenly pitched' range of varietal wines.

Aromas of sweet floral aromas of jasmine and honeysuckle combine with grapefruit and lemon characters underpinned by a mineral thread. With a splash of residual sweetness, this wine is very moreish. The sweet entry is balanced by a bright acidity and retained spritziness, which give the wine crispness and 'liveliness'. It has great length and is at once mouth filling and refreshing.

Great as an aperitif, or lively dinner companion - try with pork belly and caramelized apple.
