Roaring Meg Riesling 2020
The Roaring Meg Riesling 2020 is broad open nashi pear characters lead into a textured mid-palate. The wine's natural acidity steps in and ties the threads of the wine together and helps balance the wines off-dry style. White peach and citrus provides the flourishes that finish the wine. Delicious and lively.
Roaring Meg Central Otago Pinot Gris is at its best within three to five years of release.
2020 sets a new benchmark for tricky seasons. A wet, cold and windy spring introduced our growing season, these conditions continued through our key flowering and fruit set periods in October and December - impacting our potential yields for the season. Disturbed weather patterns continued right through January, and whilst the weather settled in February it was not its usual scorching self. We experienced cool periods through both veraison and ripening; delaying and then slowing down our harvest. COVID-19 lockdown arrived with our first day of harvest. Even with all that fruit condition was superb with no disease pressure, and the small berries were bursting with flavour.
