Reminiscent of the great Kabinett wines, this Riesling is a fragrant and beautifully balanced wine that can be enjoyed with food or by itself. Citrus and honeysuckle on the nose, with an initial burst of sweetness balanced by fresh lemon and lime to leave a crisp finish.
The Tupari Riesling block is situated on a thin terrace stretching along the top of the cliff face with maginificent valley views. Warm days and cool night combined to create the distinguishing mineral character and rich flavours typical of the Awatere Valley.
