Vineyard Description

Located on the central valley floor of the Wairau Valley, the Fletcher Vineyard is characterised by free-draining alluvial soils. Pruned to balance the site naturally it exhibits low vigour where the fruit is encouraged to develop botrytis early. With careful late season management the fruit is harvested after the botrytis has drawn much of the berries’ moisture, concentrating sugars, acids and flavours. 


Winemakers Comment

Attractive Riesling aromas of citrus zest and honeysuckle are accompanied by intense Noble Botrytis characters of apricot, mango and dried fruits. The palate is characteristically mouthfilling with a seductive orange blossom and sweet spice core balanced by a fine backbone of cleansing acidity. This wine exhibits superb concentration with great length and persistence of flavour. 

Cellaring

Careful cellaring will be rewarded with the development of further complexity up to ten years from vintage.
