Private Bin Riesling 2020

Marlborough
  • 75cl bottle

Bright lifted aromas reminiscent of spring, floral perfume, fresh lemon and limes jump out of the glass. The palate is light and crisp showing juicy apricot and mandarin flavours with a hint of ginger spice. This Private Bin Riesling is an off-dry style displaying excellent fruit sweetness balanced with zesty sherbet-like acidity on the finish.

Vineyards

From selected vineyards in Marlborough.

Vintage

A near-perfect growing season led up to 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. The summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level and the stable autumn weather allowed us to extend the hangtime of the fruit on the vines to achieve physiological ripeness.

Winemaking

After selective machine harvesting, the resulting clear juice was slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the distinctive crisp Riesling flavours.
