  • Anchorage Family Estate Classic Riesling 2015

Bright and pale with light green hues. The nose has elegant notes of the "classical" Riesling flavours, green apple, peach and lime and a hint of Jasmin. Sweet to taste with a harmonious balance of natural residual sweetness, crisp acidity and prominent spritz. All the elegant flavours that have shown through on the nose make a lively appearance on your tongue and compliment the balanced nature of this Riesling.


Winemaking 

Fruit was produced on two family vineyards in Riwaka beside the western banks of the Motueka River, along the main road of the Able Tasman National Park. Land alongside the river is renowned for its horiticultural value. Only two canes are tied down after pruning which allows to crop at a low level giving the fruit a "classic" Riesling character, even at an early ripeness level. Both Riesling vineyards are in very close proximity and showcase the site and flavour characteristics in a very elegant manner. Cold settled juice is inoculated with a selected yeast strain and then fermented at low temperatures to preserve all the elegant fruit flavours and help to showcase some of the floral characters.


Food Pairing

Share with good company on for any occasion, or with seafood and crisp summer vegetables and salads.

4.5 Stars (90 points) - Sam Kim

A lovely low-alcohol (9%) rendition, the delicately fragrant bouquet shows lemon sorbet, fresh apple, spring blossom and a touch of flinty notes. The palate is juicy and bright, and shows fine texture and elegant sweetness, which is beautifully countered by racy acidity. it is linear and lingering, and very appealing.
