Greywacke Riesling 2015Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandFrom certified organic, 20-ish year Ashmore Vineyard, adjacent to the mouth of the Brancott Valley comes this Kiwi riesling, a grape we're not as familiar with from NZ. Driving lime, mandarine, on a softer, off-dry palate, lined with glycerine. Hints of spiced aromatic melon filter through river water, medium-bodied finish. This was whole bunch pressed, 50 percent tank fermented and 50 percent in older oak with native yeast before a 5-7 stint in oak prior to bottling.Tasted: 26 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 private wine shops Producer: GreywackeDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
