Riesling Planted at Redbank Paddocks

Riesling grapesTwo Paddocks has taken a startling new direction this month. We have planted almost a hectare of Riesling. Over four days, finishing December 5, 2000, we close planted 3,327 rooted cuttings (acquired from our distinguished colleagues at Felton Road) in one of our middle paddocks. Close planting encourages low yields and intense flavours in the grapes. We plan to produce, in other words, a premium dry Riesling to accompany our Pinot Noir.

We have taken this step because, while we can grow many varieties in our region successfully, we are of the conviction that the two classic varieties in Central Otago will be Riesling and Pinot Noir.

The grapes will be cropping first in 2003 so we can expect the first TWO PADDOCKS WHITE in 2004.

We can't wait.
