A fabulous vintage and an elegant wine

2021 Mondillo Riesling

Central Otago

Deliciously seductive bouquet with aromas of fresh white peach and lime flower, mandarin and apple tea, minerals and baby’s breath flowers. Dry, refreshingly crisp with a core of citrus and tree fruit flavors, flowers and spring water minerality. The smell of a cool summer afternoon. Balanced, well made and delicious. A great aperitif style, ready to drinking from purchase and through 2029+, Cameron Douglas MS.

Winemaker's notes

The 2021 Central Otago growing season started off with a cool spring, followed by perfect weather from February through to mid April.  Warm and dry weather conditions during this time gave us delicious tasting fruit and a wonderful grape harvest.  Whole bunch pressed; allowed to settle overnight before being racked and inoculated.  Cool fermentation over several weeks, then stopped when desired balance was achieved.  Domenic and the winery team believe the 2021 vintage offered some of the best smelling ferments of all time!

Originating in Jamaica, jerk is a way of flavoring and cooking meats or fish on a wood-fired BBQ. This 'all in one' meal is simply divine.
