K&L Notes

Anna and Jason Flowerday own the oldest grapevines in Marlborough and they certainly know what to do with them. Their first passion is aromatic whites and this medium-dry style, with 30 grams per liter RS, makes for an extremely smashable offering. Coming from their estate vineyard, the BioGrow number they list on their label demonstrates their commitment to organic and biodynamic farming. Showing pure fruit, elegance and age-worthiness, this is one of the most exciting wines on the shelf. Winery's note: "Our passion for making and drinking Riesling is based partly on the wide variety of styles that this variety is capable of producing. That array of styles is a double-edged sword for some, but we feel that by labelling our Rieslings true to type we can encourage the Riesling revolution. We are enamoured by the general characteristics of all great Riesling wines: purity, elegance and age-ability and feel that the growing conditions here in Marlborough allow Riesling to produce at its best it really is an unsung hero variety for this part of the world. The high sunshine hours mean that we are able to achieve ripe, fruit concentration and the cooler night time temperatures mean that we retain the natural acidity that is the hallmark of this noble variety." (Anna & Jason Flowerday) 30 g/L RS.

    The "M" stands for "medium sweet" but the wine comes across much drier than it is due to its acidity. Peaches, citrous, white flower. Very enticing, and a perfection with spicy food.

    This is, just simply, GREAT Riesling! A very pretty jasmine scented nose with apricot and orange. On the palate, bright, Mandarin orange, tangerine and cherry. Simply delicious and tasted drier than the label indicates (M=Medium dry). Just lovely!
