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.
From selected vineyards in Marlborough.
The Marlborough growing season started off well with very little frost pressure during spring. Flowering went without a glitch and due healthy soil moisture levels the canopies looked lush and vibrant. The start of 2022 summer was slightly colder; February was below the long-term average in temperature, but the weather settled, and we saw a mild although slightly damp autumn.
After selective machine harvesting, the resulting clear juice was slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the distinctive crisp Riesling flavours.
