Waimea Family Estate 'Classic Riesling' 2015 Nelson
Delicious bouquet of sweet lemon and mandarin laced with aromas of stony minerals, a touch of saline and light floral tones. On the palate - only just dry with a light residual sugar note, the wine definitely finishes dry; flavours of ripe citrus, crisp apple, tangerine and rose; plenty of mineral tones and abundant refreshing acidity. Lengthy finish.
Waimea Family Estate Pinot Gris 2016 Nelson
Striking bouquet of ripe variteal Gris with aromas of green pear, apple and some tropical fruit such as pineapple; white spice and crushed florals. On the palate - vibrant and just dry with ripe fruit flavours, medium+ (ish) acidity and warming alcohol; loads of flavor and style, some phenolic texture adding length and finish. Great balance and well made.
