Rippon 2016 Mature Vine Lake Wanaka Riesling (Central Otago)

Editors' Choice

Like Rippon itself, which perches in solitude at the edge of Lake Wanaka, 35 miles north of Central Otago, the wines are singular, inimitable evocations of the water, mountains and schist soils of this historic biodynamic farm. This Riesling sings with a honey-flecked orchard fruit aroma and bright minerality. The palate reveals layer upon layer of pear, honeysuckle and crushed stone, all sitting on a chalky texture and crunchy acidity. Christina Pickard
