14 Hukapapa Dessert Riesling (375ml)

Rich golden colour gives a clue to what you’re in for. The glass is filled with aromas of peach, tropical fruits as well as a hint of apple and citrus. The palate is immediately filled with luscious sweetness and a creamy texture. The tropical and citrus flavours are superbly balanced by the natural acidity and concentration of sugars.

ELITE GOLD - Canberra International Riesling Challenge 2016, Oct 2016
5 STARS & BEST BUY - Cuisine Magazine, Issue 273, Nov 2015
“Like ice wine, this was made from Riesling juice concentrated by freezing. A spicy, aromatic nose suggests peach syrup, lime cordial and floral scent. It’s sweet, yet fresh and light, a bit like a sweet Mosel. Its delicacy, purity, ultra-fine texture and zippy acidity give wonderful balance.”

GOLD - New World Wine Awards 2016
4 STARS & BEST BUY – Cuisine Magazine, Issue 179
“Made from juice concentrated by freezing, this luscious sweet wine from Marlborough’s Wairau Valley balances stonefruit and honeyed elements with tangy mandarin and lime marmalade-like characters in lovely harmony. It’s intense, yet fresh and pristine, with precise acidity emphasising purity of varietal fruit.”
89 POINTS – Bob Campbell MW, BobCampbell.nz, Mar 2015
“Moderately sweet and pleasingly pure dessert wine with citrus/lime, floral and honey flavours that are underpinned by fresh acidity. A hint of hardness on the finish detracts slightly.”
