Rippon Mature Vine Riesling

Winemaker Notes

A warm & productive summer put plenty of flesh on this wine. The fruit is issued from Rippon’s mature vines, whose root hairs have invaded the schist rock below. Lurking towards the end of the first mouthful is substantial phenolic power and it soon starts to take charge of the wine… and give it its sense of place

#21 on James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of New Zealand 2018

Winery notes (2017 Vintage)

"Foliated, layered and focussed; reflective of the schist laden soils from which it is issued. The Rippon Riesling was fermented by the property’s resident yeast population and remains for an extended period in contact with its primary lees. Ready now, but correct cellaring will be rewarded."

96/100 James Suckling (2017 Vintage)

"Beautiful clarity of aromas in the grapefruit and lime-peel zone. Then abundant stony, flinty, wet rock complexity. Immensely fresh palate, this is full of life and has a very long, seamless run to a dry, flavoursome finish. Drink or hold."
