2010 Huia Riesling
The 2010 Riesling is a single vineyard wine from our Winsome
block. The growing season furbished ideal ripening conditions.
This combined with the rich clay soils and beautifully exposed fruit
has given us a full flavoured dry Riesling with a wonderful mineral
The grapes were hand harvested at optimum ripeness on the 16th
April. These were de-stemmed and crushed to the press. The wine
fermented in stainless steel tanks using natural yeasts which carried
out a long cool ferment, retaining the vibrant fruit characters.
The nose is aromatic, full of uplifting citrus and floral notes. On
the palate the wine delivers a lovely depth of flavours, is rich and
dry with bright mandarin and honeysuckle. This Riesling shows
good length and ends on a refreshing vibrant mineral finish.
Huia Riesling is delicious with: fresh oysters and scallops, sushi,
whitebait fritters, Asian food, pasta with fresh tomato in a white
wine sauce and firm fruity cheeses.
