Huia Riesling is a single vineyard white wine grown in the Hillside Vineyard in the Hawkesbury Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand. The mild growing season, combined with the rich clay soils and beautifully exposed fruit, has helped to create an elegant, floral and lemony off-dry Riesling with a wonderful mineral finish. This wine is perfect to drink now but also is capable of ageing for many years to come.
The grapes were crushed and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks, to retain the vibrant fruit characters. This has produced a bright, aromatic white wine bursting full of floral and citrus notes.
The palate is off-dry and shows jasmine and honeysuckle alongside lime and lemon citrus, with just a hint of the oily richness you anticipate with a good riesling.
