ZEPHYR MARLBOROUGH RIESLING 2015
A pretty simple process - hand picked bright pale green fruit - not too much golden sun burn. Gentle whole bunch pressed - Cold and the free run kept separate to ensure vibrancy. Fined as juice, and left to settle at for a week before being racked off warmed and fermented with inoculated yeast - long and slow to ensure a ripe phenolic texture and elegant aromas - then on cold again for 4 weeks before being prepped for bottling in late August.
Pale green with yellow flint hues. Cut lemonade, lime, and spice on the nose combine with citrus and apple flesh on the palate to make this a pure and sultry tipple.
