Crafted to be naturally lower in alcohol and in an off- dry style, this ITI SELECTION Riesling is a medium weighted wine with a fresh and lively entry leading to baked apple and citrus flavours with some floral and lanolin tones. A juicy sliver of sweetness is supported by well balanced acidity.
Silver Medal, NZ Organic Wine Awards, May 2017
“Exuberant, punchy and packed with lemon, lime, mandarin and crunchy apple flavours – there is nothing “iti” (small) about the flavour. An ultra-crisp and tangy taste sensation that would work outstandingly well with slivers of hard, salty sheep’s cheese drizzled in honey.”
"Light-bodied, with ripe, lemony, slightly peachy and spicy flavours, gentle sweetness and fresh acidity keeping things lively. Offering very easy drinking." Michael Cooper
The fruit for this wine was sourced entirely from selected rows in our organic certified vineyards in Brightwater, Nelson. It is 100% Riesling, harvested earlier than usual with a Brix level of 19.8º. Diligent leaf plucking gave good exposure, to ensure the fruit flavours were sufficiently ripe at this low Brix level.
