West Brook Marlborough Riesling 2013

Tasting notes:

A refined and elegant amalgam of sweetly scented florals, apple skin and lime. Reflecting similarly on the palate, entwined in a tryst with elements of stone and citrus. Evoking the fluid movement of a fine linen – crisp and textured. Classic Marlborough Riesling in a beckoning off-dry style.

Winemakers Production notes:
This wine was produced from two vineyard blocks owned by the Wiffen family in the Omaka sub-region of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. Strict vineyard management produces low crops of intensely flavoured grapes. Acid and fruit flavour balance are of the utmost importance, and have consistently produced top class wines.
Good flowering led to a fair sized crop that required thinning. This was done pre-veraison, as was a hand leaf pluck to open the fruit zone. This proved fortuitous as the effects of late season showers were dried easily allowing great flavour development and magnificent acid/pH balance.
Juice fractions are separately fined before combination. Stainless steel fermentation ensues with breakdown to many small tanks so that a variety of yeast strain/block permutations can be performed. Final blend is based on taste balance.
