Greystone Riesling 2018

Waipara Valley, South Island, New ZealandThis organic riesling comes from hillside blocks of their Waipara Valley, North Canterbury estate. Clone 239 Riesling is rooted into clay limestone soils, and each block was harvested, whole bunch pressed, and fermented separately, with 5-10% botrytis inclusion in this vintage. After 5 months on lees, this was blended and bottled without fining. Ripe and fleshy pear, honeysuckle, quince is shaded with petrol and livened with lime peel, taking this off-dry white to a lingering finish. Smart and primed for drinking now.Tasted: 10 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 24.95 LCBO Producer: Greystone WinesDistributors: Noble Estates Wines & Spirits Inc.
