Kahurangi Dry Riesling 2018

16.99

Description

From family owned boutique winery, Kahurangi Estate in New Zealand’s South Island, this dry Riesling is grown on soils rich with Moutere clay, hallowed land upon which lie the oldest commercial vineyards in the South Island.

A nose of citrus and green apple is followed by a luscious palate of granny smith apple, lemon rind and a bracingly refreshing acidity and minerality. This is a wine with youthful verve which will cellar well and become increasingly complex with age. Perfect with seafood and meatier or oily fish such as salmon and mackerel.

Producer: Kahurangi Estate

Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique vineyard dedicated to producing hand-made, sustainable premium wines from their cool-climate Nelson, South Island location. Greg and Amanda Day moved back home to New Zealand with their young family in 1998, to purchase the existing Vineyard in Upper Moutere and develop the Kahurangi brand.

Along with their daughter Samantha as part of the management team, they have focused on cultivation of Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blnac amongst others from their vineyards which have the oldest commercial vines in the South Island. They bottles some of their reserve wines in honour of Mount Arthur, one of the highest mountains in the Kahurangi National Park. Standing at 1,795 metres above sea level it makes a majestic backdrop to the Kahurangi Estate vineyard.

Chief wine-maker Neil Todd has been with Kahurangi Estate since April 2000, ably assisted by Burgundy specialist and oenologist Emmanuelle David, and all efforts combined have resulted in Kahurangi winning international acclaim and critic's awards for their range of estate bottled and Mount Arthur special selection wines alike.

    Sam Kim. Wine Orbit, Oct 2018

    "Youthful and delicately fragrant, the bouquet shows crunchy apple, grapefruit, floral and lime peel characters, followed by a finely textured palate that is linear and mouth-watering. The wine is pristine and elegant, brilliantly structured by racy acidity, finishing long and vibrant. At its best: now to 2024"
