The Doctors Riesling 2012
Now assuming cult status in the New Zealand wine scene the Doctors’Riesling continues to amaze wine critics and novices alike. Grown on our stony Condors bend vineyard at Renwick the fruit ripens slowly, in Marlborough’s cool dry autumn climate, gaining flavour intensity yet retaining all important acidity. Harvested early at low sugars the grapes are gently pressed, cold settled and given a cool slow fermentation which was arrested around 8.5% alcohol and 31.6g/l residual sugar. The final decision on when to stop the wine fermentation is very much
decided on acid/sugar balance.
Wow it’s like biting into a deliciously crisp Granny Smith apple, licking lime sherbet and eating your first of the season Central Otago apricot, all at one time! The 2012 Doctors’ Riesling is simply stunning, oh so easy to drink and at a modest 8.5% alcohol; who feels guilty having a
second glass? It’s firmly established as New Zealand’s favorite Riesling; outselling any of our other, very fine, Rieslings ten to one. So chill a bottle and see for yourself what thousands of Kiwis are enjoying!
