Waipara Valley

The Mound Riesling

Select Vintage:

 

This Single Vineyard Riesling is sourced from The Mound Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vineyard was established in 2002 on terraced gravels that offer little fertility which, along with Waipara’s long cool growing season, provide perfect conditions for making world class Riesling.

Comments
The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice was cold settled and racked a few days later. A long and slow fermentation ensured to maintain freshness and preserve primary Riesling notes. The ferment was stopped when the acidity and residual sugar were in optimal balance, before being cold settled and racked. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled on 30 October 2019.

OUR PEOPLE.

We live amongst the vineyards in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. For us it’s all about lifestyle. We’re lucky to enjoy the simple things from the land; like fresh crayfish, scallop season and wild venison. And because our wines are available in cities around the world, we also thrive on what the world has to offer. Pretty much the best of both worlds we reckon.

FOOD, FAMILY & FRIENDS.

Our fresh accessible style of wine is made to be shared. Crisp whites, rich aromatics and reds with depth and purity.Everyday wines to enjoy on any occasion.

“When friends pop round, it’s our ‘go to’ wine. You could say it’s our house red.”

– Jack Glover

IMPORTANCE OF PLACE.

The South Island of New Zealand covers over 151,215km2 ofrugged mountains, lakes, glaciers, ski fields and rivers. As proud guardians of the land our iconic vineyards are located in some of New Zealand's defining wine regions: Marlborough, Central Otago and the Waipara Valley. Each location has been selected with care and foresight; and as a result we aim to interfere as little as possible once the grapes arrive in the hands of the winemakers. Each vintage we create a portfolio of pure, expressive, balanced, vibrant and honest wines.
