Foxes Island Dry Riesling 2016

"Riesling is one of the great white wines of the world that rewards those with patience and continually challenges and inspires me as a winemaker". – John Belsham

The Riesling vines grow in a very stony, lower, bowl shaped terrace on the Awatere Estate next to the river’s edge. John keeps the Riesling style very pure, focused and restrained; capturing the true essence of the grape and the site.  The juice is protected all through the winemaking process to ensure the wine develops the layers of flavours that we all love, in the bottle.
John’s Rieslings are designed to age, so please enjoy the 2016 now. 

Aromas of citrus blossom and ripe nectarine fill the glass whilst flavours of white peach, lime and wet stone flavours are accented with a slight hint of fennel and salinity. The focused length and fresh acidity makes this wine extremely versatile and delicious.

Enjoy as an aperitif or with spicy, curried and salty foods; from potato chips to oysters - enjoy!
