Paleo Erik's notes The Waipara Valley is the spiritual home of Riesling in New Zealand. It’s not surprising then that it’s attracted some of the most eccentric, passionate, obsessed Riesling freaks on the planet. Spicy aromas of black and white pepper abound with a heady perfume of orange blossom, mandarin skin essence, grapefruit and melon with hints of apricot ker- nels. The palate is rich and full yet with an elegance and purity at the same time; this is portrayed by the ripe flavours of passionfruit, orange and honey which is complimented by white pepper and lime zest. The palate is rich and long yet per- fectly balanced by the acid leaving ones mouth cleansed and refreshed, making another glass irresistible. Sommelier's Comments 95 points Sam Kim "This is exciting and invigorating; the gorgeous bouquet shows lemon curd, lime sorbet, orange peel and subtle honey notes, leading to a succulent palate that is packed with delicious fruit flavours, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and refreshing acidity. The wine is generous and flavoursome while remaining firmly structured and stylish. Style: Off-dry." 91 points Robert Parker "In the cool 2014 vintage, the 2014 Riesling wasn't harvested until May 1. The wine shows aromas of honey and a bit of petrol, plus Golden Delicious apple, stone fruit and lime flavors. It's medium to full-bodied and off-dry in style (12 grams per liter residual sugar), with a finish that's long, rich and spicy."
