Two Paddocks Riesling - 2019

About the wine

Two Paddocks Riesling is an estate grown, single block selection made from fruit grown at Two Paddocks’ Red Bank Vineyard situated in the Earnscleugh district of Alexandra, Central Otago. As in the vineyard, this wine was hand crafted using traditional methods and bottled early to ensure all the integrity and vitality of the wine was preserved. The soils in this block are well draining schist loam and the vines tend to thrive. Additionally the typically extreme summer diurnal temperatures experienced in Alexandra are responsible for both metabolising (softening) acidity during the day and then bright freshness is retained from the significantly cooler nights – all this really means is that we feel a drier and more textural wine style is both possible and appropriate.

"This is brilliantly expressed with nectarine, Gala apple, lime cordial and white floral aromas on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate offering terrific focus and structure. The wine exhibits perfect tension and balance, leading to an engaging steely finish. Style: Dry. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2035. "
"Already delicious, the 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Red Bank Vineyard, at Earnscleugh, near Alexandra. Bright, light lemon/green, it is an invitingly scented, medium to full-bodied wine, with strong, peachy, citrusy flavours, ripe and lively, a sliver of sweetness, good acid spine and plenty of personality. Very finely balancd, it's certified organic."
