Our Riesling 2006 has won a gold medal at 2019 Aromatic Wine Competition
Released in Summer 2006, this is a Riesling we commented would reward cellaring over the next three years! The vintage was mildly warm which meant early picking. Fruit quality was very good, and grapes were able to develop a real depth of flavour.
Immediately the Riesling 06 scored Gold at the Hyatt international Riesling Challenge in Canberra (2006).
Since then it has scored, another two Golds (2008), helped us win the Easter Heritage Trophy twice (2013, 2017) and the Marlborough Wine Show Museum Legacy Award (2017)!!
Finally, it has picked up a gold medal at the 2019 Aromatic Wine Competition in the ‘Museum’ category, 13 years on. Our Riesling style offers itself to long lasting wines, obviously a bit longer than we might have thought!
