(Sep 2016)

Delightful, mouthwatering Riesling from free-draining gravel terraces. Rich, opulent pineapple, peach and apricot with honey and waxy notes from a hint of botrytis. Light sweetness is balanced by lively acidity and freshness on the persistent finish, which has subtle phenolic grip.
91/100 (Mar 2016)

Vegy spectrum of Riesling – Spätlese sweetness with just a little astringency but very fresh lime character. Racy and distinctive. 13%

The grapes for this wine are sourced from two vineyards: The Mound Vineyard and Bedford Vineyard, both situated on the north facing gravel terraces associated with the Waipara riverbed. Left on the lees for just enough time to give length and intensity to the palate without distracting from the purity of fruit. Aromas of beeswax, honey and stone fruit prevail combined with the classic mandarin spray typical of Waipara Riesling. A palate rich and full with intense flavours of melon, peach and manuka honey but balanced by lemon and lime acidity.


Six friends, five of them Roseworthy graduates (although the winemaker, Lynette Hudson, is a graduate of Lincoln) were prompted to form this 'perfect fit' team by the Canterbury earthquake and the realisation that they had to get on with doing something themselves as well as working for others. All well-connected in the NZ wine scene, they are able to source outstanding fruit and clearly have the expertise to turn this into outstanding wines. Check out their website at Their first releases have already caused quite a stir - but are very limited in quantity.
