Fromm La Strada Riesling Spatlese Style 2003 Marlborough Region New Zealand 750ml x 12 :

This is essentially a 'Spätlese' by German standards, meaning 'late harvest'. In the New World late harvest is usually associated with the ripest, sweetest fruit. In the traditional selection process of German Rieslings it is quite the opposite. The ripest berries are harvested in select pickings to produce the more concentrated sweet wines. What is left on the vines becomes the late harvest, usually clean, less intense fruit with firm structure resulting in pure, fresh aperitif wines.Fromm La Strada Riesling Spatlese stlye wine is a delightful, low alcohol summer wine,which has all the hallmarks of a classic Spätlese. Excellent balance with high residual sweetness and a firm acid/pH structure to finish light and refreshing.

Giesen Estate Canterbury Riesling 2001 Regional New Zealand 750ml x 12 :

Giesen Estate Canterbury Riesling has an elegant varietal purity with ripe citrus, orange-blossom and hints of honey. A fruit driven wine that has a palate that is balanced by focused, tangy acid leading to a lifted, fresh citrus finish.The fruit was harvested  with considerable purity of aroma and flavour. The distinct difference in Brix levels led us to produce a style lower in alcohol with some residual sugar, rather than push the wine beyond its natural boundaries. The clear juice was fermented at low temperatures (12 - 14° C) then left on yeast lees post fermentation to further develop both bouquet and palate. Given time, the wine will develop further character in the bottle.

Huia Riesling 2004 Marlborough Region New Zealand 750ml x 12 :

Huia Riesling is a wonderful Riesling. The very long cool and sunny growing season gave us grapes close to perfection. They were sourced from two different vineyards: the Two Ponds vineyard in the Wairau Valley, that grows on a deep silt loam soil which brings balance and finesse to the wine, and the Rapaura Fairhall Vineyards from 24 year-old Riesling vines, that brings depth and length.The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness both by hand and machine. The hand picked portion was de-stemmed and crushed and the machine harvested ones were pressed directly. The wine went through a long cool ferment in stainless steel.The nose shows good intensity and seduces with its ripe lemon and floral aromas. The palate is rich with citrus, mandarin and honeysuckle. It has a silky texture and a long vibrant mineral persistency.This wine shows excellent aging potential.Huia Riesling is delicious with: fresh oysters and scallops, sushi, whitebait fritters, Asian food, pasta with fresh tomato in a white wine sauce and firm fruity cheeses.
