The Crossings - Awatere Valley Riesling 2011 - Marlborough 6x 75cl Bottles
75cl Bottles £9.47 Available 12th Mar 2016
Description: Lifted aromas of lemon, lime intermingle with fragrant jasmine florals and a hint of honey. The plush, off - dry palate remains taut and steely on the back of signature Awatere acids while the flavours echo the citrus and honey infused bouquet. In time and with careful cellaring this wine will grow considerably in depth and complexity.
This wine is highly versatile and will match with most light to medium flavoured foods.

Based in the Awatere to the south east of Marlborough`s Wairau Plains, Yealands Estate encompasses 1,000 hectares of viticultural land (with 500 hectares currently under vine) in the rolling downs of the Awatere Valley, with smaller vineyard blocks near Blenheim. Yealands Estate is the largest vineyard in private ownership in New Zealand and founder Peter Yealands is renowned for his innovative vineyard management techniques and technologies. The winery is Carbon Neutral and the first to be built entirely under the New Zealand Green Building Council`s accreditation programme, while the vineyard is sustainably managed. This approach in both the winery and the vineyard is rare in such a large operation.
