Te Whare Ra is enamoured by the general characteristics of all great Riesling wines: purity, elegance and age-ability

WINE MAKING NOTES

The Te Whare Ra passion for making and drinking Riesling is based partly on the wide variety of styles that this variety is capable of producing. That array of styles is a double edged sword for some, but Te Whare Ra feel that by labelling their Rieslings true to type they can encourage the Riesling revolution. Te Whare Ra is enamoured by the general characteristics of all great Riesling wines: purity, elegance and age-ability and feel that the growing conditions here in Marlborough allow Riesling to produce at its best. The high sunshine hours mean that Te Whare Ra are able to achive ripe, fruit concentration and the cooler night time temperatures mean that Te Whare Ra retain the natural acidity that is the hallark of this noble variety.

All fruit for this wine was hand-picked and then hand-sorted. The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed and then given some skin contact time before being slowly pressed. All parcels were fermented in purpose-built Riesling tanks. The wine underwent a slow, cool fermentation to retain aromatics and purity.

This wine has not been fined and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and anyone else who loves authentic, hand-made wines.

TASTING NOTES

This Riesling "M" is designed from the "vineyard-in" in a medium-dry style and is dangerously drinkable. Lifted aromas of mandarin, pink grapefruit, and white peach follow onto vibrant, ripe flavours of the same with juicy lime with underlying slatey mineral notes. This wine is fine and soft with excellent fruit weight and concentration to counterbalance the mouth-watering acidity.

2016 was an exceptional vintage in Marlborough, characterised by a waremer and drier than average summer and very even ripening. This has resulted in very balanced, fleshy wines with juicy acidity.

This 2016 Riesling "M" is delicious to drink now and will also benefit from careful cellaring for 4-8+ years for those who prefer their Riesling with some bottle age.
