Riesling Domaine Rewa Central Otago 2012/3
Domaine Rewa, Central Otago
We are thrilled to be working with Domaine Rewa, an up and coming producer from the Central Otago. With a tiny 5.5ha single vineyard nestled in the foothills of the Pisa Range on the unique fluvial terrace, owner Philippa Fourbet, together with winemaker Pete Bartle, is pursuing her lifelong dream of producing refined wines from her homeland in Central Otago inspired by the elegance of Burgundy. These superbly pure and perfumed wines are produced following a biodynamic regime in order to fashion the best possible expressions of their Central Otago terroir.
Coming from a tiny single vineyard plot.
Pale gold and beautifully fragrant with aromas of white peach, orange blossom and an underlying smoky minerality. Off-dry on the palate with 20g/L residual sugar, this is a perfect wine for an aperitif or pairing with Pad Thai or Roast Pumpkin Ravioli. It has luscious, intense flavours of mandarin, lime, ripe apricots and honey. Full bodied with a refreshingly crisp acidity, this delicious Riesling has a long lingering, complex finish.
