Waitaki Braids 2006 Riesling.
From the very beginning our Waitaki Riesling fruit has been guided to make this distinctive Germanic style of wine due to the valley’s cool climate, longer growing season and limestone rich soils. This wine shows subtle floral notes of lemon and lime blossom with sherbet and a hint of spice. It has a rich velvety mouth feel with a succulent uplifting palate due to the wine’s slight aeration or champagne effect. This wine is a pleasure to drink - vibrant up front, assertive acidity and a refreshingly lower alcohol have resulted in a wine of pure balance, length and sublime fruit sweetness.
