Kuki Marlborough Riesling

KUKI040
This is an absolutely stunning Riesling, showcasing everything that is great about the noble riesling grape. Using vineyards across Marlbrough with a little Awatere fruit, this dry, ripe and intense Riesling shows ripe tropical tangerine, lemon and grapefruit characters, balancing on a nerve edge of rapier-like acidity that freshens and enlivens the palate. The finish is long, intense and rounding out as the wine ages, flecked with a touch of honey and mandarin orange. A deliciously fresh and crisp Riesling from the Malborough vineyards.

Vinification

Once harvested, the grapes were transported to the winery, gently pressed, then settled in tank. The warm fermentation was started with selected yeast strains. Following the ferment the wine was left to mature on full lees for up to three months to enhance structure and mouth feel. After blending the wine was fined using natural methods and prepared for bottling.
