Anchorage Classic Riesling 2007
An approachable medium style riesling with a tropical palate and nose. The fruit salad palate is mouth-filling and long-lasting, made in a middleweight style with hints of deeper honeycomb characteristics to come.
Winemaker: Justin Papesch
Producer: Anchorage Wines New Zealand Limited
Winemaker Notes: Harvested from Ray’s Riwaka home block and trucked to a Marlborough winery, the fruit was de-stemmed and bag pressed to tanks where a light fining occurred. After cold settling, the juice was clean-racked, with no solid pressing material used. Following inoculation with a German yeast strain, it underwent a “warmer” fermentation to develop its tropical palate. A stop-ferment was performed at an early stage to create a classic riesling.
