Two Paddocks Riesling
- Low stock - 14 items left
PRODUCER: Sam Neill wanted to produce a good pinot noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by family and friends. Today, at Two Paddocks, they are producing five different pinot noir from four organically grown vineyards in the three main valleys of Central Otago. They still only produce two varieties - pinot noir and a tiny volume of riesling.
WINEMAKING: Crafted from a tiny half-hectare block at Two Paddocks Red Bank Vineyard at Earnscleugh, Central Otago, which consistently produces the ripest and most intense riesling on the estate. All grapes are grown using sustainable principles, hand harvested, fermented in stainless steel with a small percentage in aged oak.
TASTING NOTES: Wildflower and citrus perfumed aromatics. Followed by pink grapefruit and mango flavours, great tension and drive. This wine finishes dry but has generous fruit intensity and persistence.
