Greystone Riesling 2010

Greystone Riesling 2010
This is our benchmark Riesling, a hero variety in this region.
Our 2010 vintage shows hints of orange and lime rind on the nose. As with all our Rieslings we’re really interested in the texture we can create in the wine, afforded to us by the long hang time we get in the Waipara Valley.
 
Lots of spice, peach & other stone fruit on the palate focused by some lovely citrus flavoured minerality.

Wine Notes

Winemaker Notes: Our Riesling was whole bunch pressed and settled cold before a cool fermentation, entirely in stainless steel tanks. The 239 clone gave us beautiful flavours in the vineyard, which has translated into intense and pure flavours in this year’s Greystone Riesling. A short time on yeast lees, before filtration, has given us a smooth and enticing texture. Cellar for 8 + years.

Viticulture Notes: A blend of two blocks from Greystone Vineyard. Block four from heavier soils with dominant clay and block 12 from steeper and drier soils with less topsoil and underlying limestone. Shoot thinning and careful bunch selection at harvest time has given us clean and ripe fruit. Density 2500 vines/Ha on VSP two-cane trellis..
