K&L Notes

When our customers think about the acclaimed varietal wines coming out of Australia and New Zealand, Riesling may not be the first one that comes to mind. Luckily for us, a surge in popularity and ideal growing conditions means these two countries are putting forth some truly phenomenal examples of the grape, ranging from bone dry to sticky sweet. Eden Valley and Victoria in Australia are dominating the Riesling game, aided by cool growing sites and higher mountain elevations. Marlborough, Central Otago and North Canterbury are all strong Riesling regions in New Zealand, with each bringing unique climates and terroir to the varietal. It is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with Rieslings from these two trailblazing countries, as there are more styles and beautiful examples being produced now than ever.

    Nimble and racy, with that classic petrol nose, grapefruit notes and big acid on the finish, this Mount Edward release almost feels like a German Riesling. But the unique terroir of Central Otago and wild yeast fermentation give this lively 2017 a fresh style all its own. At 8 g/L residual sugar, it walks the line between dry and off dry, which only makes it all the more versatile – it’s especially good with spicy food!

    This is the first release of Riesling off the Morrison vineyard from New Zealand Direct Import Mount Edward Winery. An off-dry style (though still showing very zippy), the marker of the Morrison vineyard is a mineral pith-like texture and a linear acidity. Central Otago boasts a unique Riesling growing site due to its continental climate, schist soils, and high percentage of UV-ray penetration. These factors combined create very cool nights and warm days, which allow the grapes to get physiologically ripe with becoming overly sweet. There is great drive to this wine and a fantastic texture from the aging on fine lees. I could drink this one all day long.
