Picnic Riesling - 2008

About the wine


The label shows the proprietor's grandparents picnicking with friends at Wanaka circa 1920. Happy days.

Tasting Notes

This vintage our Riesling was sourced from our Redbank plantings and blended with fruit sourced from a vineyard located on the Wanaka Road outside of Cromwell.

Hints of mandarin skin, lime and white peach on the nose and the palate lead to a balanced minerality, with a crisp dry finish.

Although approachable in its youth, this wine has the potential to develop with bottle age, and start to show its strengths in about a year's time.

Sweetness: off dry, 10 - 12g/l residual sugar

Harvest Date: 10 – 12 April 2008.

Bottled:8 October 2008.

Drink:Now – 2013
