Racy, aromatic, diverse. Naturally vibrant with a zesty acidity: the ideal wine for Asian cuisine.
The South Island's bright days, cool nights and long, dry autumns create the perfect climate for Riesling.
Introduced in as early as the 1800s, it is only since the 1980s that Riesling has been planted in volume, rising to the fourth most popular white variety planted today.
Over 90% of Riesling is grown in the South Island, where the climate is ideally suited with cool, long, dry, sunny autumns, large diurnal variance and low humidity.
Styles found in New Zealand's southerly climes range from bone dry to lushly sweet.
