Dry River Craighall Vineyard Martinborough Riesling


One of the finest Rieslings in the country, this is typically a wine of exceptional purity, delicacy and depth, with a proven ability to flourish in the cellar for many years. The grapes are sourced from a small block of mature vines, mostly over 20 years old, in the Craighall Vineyard, with yields limited to an average of 6 tonnes per hectare, and the wine is stop-fermented just short of dryness – the 2019 vintage (5*) has 7 grams/litre of residual sugar. Bright, light lemon/green, it has a real sense of youthful drive and vigour. Approachable now, but well worth cellaring to at least 2024, it has intense, citrusy flavours to the fore, lively acidity, hints of peaches and spices, and a dryish, lasting finish.
