RIESLING 2014 PISA, CENTRAL OTAGO

Vineyard

The remarkable snow capped Pisa Range landscape with glittering rivers (this was gold rush territory in the 1800s) produces very distinctive wines.


Grown at Pisa – a warm district of the Cromwell Basin, careful management of the vines kept crop levels low producing good quality small-berried fruit.

The 2014 season was very typical for Central Otago with a long dry autumn allowing slow ripening - with the fruit going into the winery in excellent condition. Hand harvested on 22 April 2014 and bottled October 2014.
