Subtle citrus and wildflower aromas on the nose entice you in to a wine full of pure fresh lime on the palate. Pristine and focused, this Riesling has a strong acid spine that gives it length and finesse.
Premium Bordeaux style Merlot and Cabernet blends are the flagships of the Abbey Cellars range together with small amounts of premium Classic and Noble Rieslings.
Situated on red metal soils in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, Abbey Cellars is a boutique 'single estate' producer owned and operated by the Haworth family. Abbey Cellars wines have an exclusive focus on producing smaller volumes of hand-picked ultra premium quality wine.
The grapes were selectively hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed. Once settled the clear juice was racked to tank for fermentation. The ferment was conducted at cool temperature to retain fruit flavours. once our desired alcohol and residual sugar levels has been reached the ferment was stopped. The wine was stabilized, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
Definitely one to match with freshly caught salmon sliced into sashimi.
