Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin and in recent years has become the fourth most popular white varietal planted in New Zealand with 85% being grown in the South Island wine regions of Nelson, Marlborough, Waipara Valley and Central Otago.

The cool southerly climate of the South Island with bright days, cool nights, long dry sunny autumns, large diurnal variance and low humidity is perfectly suited for harvesting Riesling.

The flavours from northerly wine regions of the South Island, Nelson and Marlborough, tend to have lemon, lime and spicy characters while the southerly regions of Canterbury and Central Otago are green apples and crisp citrus. Styles range from bone dry to lushly sweet.

Food Matching: Grilled garlic chicken and figs with tahini sauce (dry and off-dry), Peach-glazed pork chops (dry and off-dry), Quiche lorraine (dry and off-dry), Seared scallops with fennel salad (dry and off-dry), Thai green curry (dry and off-dry), Yellow fin tuna sashimi (dry)
