  • Central Otago Riesling by Hawkshead

UNFORTUNATELY THIS WINE WILL BE DISCONTINUED IN EARLY 2017 - CURRENTLY WE HAVE ONLY 12 BOTTLES REMAINING

This Riesling is a true expression of the grape variety. It will delight with an aroma of ginger, spice and white blossom. Spicy floral notes and strong minerality give great texture and a strong lingering finish. 11.5% ABV delicious off dry Riesling from Gibbston valley Central Otago.

Grower Denis Marshall said "While we have an established reputation in Central Otago for Pinot Noir, it is good to see another variety coming through to achieve top recognition. " 

The Terroir
The Terroir From selected blocks in Lowburn, Central Otago. Free draining soils of loess, schist, and uncemented gravels together with long hours of sunshine produce lively fruit with gentle ripe acidity.
The Numbers
Fermentation The grapes are hand picked; whole bunch pressed, settled for 48hrs and then fermented at cool temperatures to retain the fresh fruit characteristics.
ABV % 11.5%
Residual Sugar 4.7g/L
