Presentation Transcript

  1. New Zealand Riesling 30th April 2010

  2. Pretaster Bascand Sauvignon Blanc 2005 (Malborough)

  3. Riesling • One of the best aging white wines due to natural high acidity levels. High sugar content provides for additional preservation – sweeter Rieslings age longer • More common in South Island regions. South Island regions produce Riesling with a vibrant, crisp character and a diverse array of regional styles ranging from steely, dry Riesling to intensely sweet, lush, botrytis-affected wines.

  4. Riesling • Favors cool climates and long sunshine hours • Ripens relatively late in the season • Long, slow ripening and proper pruning keeps the yield low and the flavour concentrated • Often reflects place of upbringing • Important to have fruit purity – more important than winemaker tricks!
