Production

Heaphy Riesling comes from 30 & 50 year old unirrigated vines grown on Moutere clay soils, the wine is a delightful red apple and lime combo whose generous body and lifted aromatics. Harvested in late February then crushed to tank, settled and racked, then allowed to settle on fine lees for 8 months prior to bottling.

Tasting notes

A nose of fresh ginger, cardamom and jasmine over a rich palate of juicy lime, red apple and stone fruit, with generous mouthfeel and texture in the finish. Feels like lounging in the sun.

Food match

Fish tacos with zesty lime, chicken or cauliflower wings with blue cheese sauce.
