The 2013 Tupari Dry Riesling is a finely textured, single vineyard wine with rich flavours and complexity, underpinned by a lingering crisp mineral finish.
The Tupari Riesling block is situated on a thin terrace stretching along the top of the cliff face with magnificent valley views. Warm days and cool nights combined to create the distinguishing mineral character and rich flavours typical of the Awatere Valley. Following harvest in the cool of the night, the gently pressed juice was carefully fermented and the process suspended with only a few grams of sugar remaining.
Region: Awatere Valley, Marlborough | New Zealand
Aroma: Lifted floral and green lime aromas
Palate: On the palate the delicate lime and lemon notes are supported by a fresh mineral acidity. This is balanced by a touch of residual sugar and a crisp dry finish
Food Match: A definitive food wine and ideal companion for freshly shucked oysters, tempura or grilled fish
Cheese Match: When the Riesling is young, match with a young and firm camembert, brie, goats cheese or chevre.
