Stop for a moment and ponder this aroma. A falcon, hovering 100 feet up, drops an orange and a lemon from his talons. Within seconds they hit the ground in front of you and instantly vaporise. Can you smell that fruity duet?
2022 The Falcon Riesling 2022
A generous, off-dry Riesling from the Awatere Valley, Marlborough. To taste, it’s like a car chase scene from a movie. You’re in the driver’s seat of an open-top car speeding around a corner. You smash into a fresh lemonade stand. As you see the stand owner pump his fist in your rearview mirror, you lick your lips and experience the delicious combo of ripe fresh citrus and juicy lemonade. Cut to new scene. Racing gloves hold a glass of fine Riesling, you take your first sip. The end. Until the next sip that is.
he fruit for this wine is solely from the Blind River area in the Awatere Valley, Marlborough.
Pressed immediately following harvest to minimise skin contact and retain freshness, then warm fermented to maintain rich aromatics.
Pale straw with green hues.
Lifted aromas of fresh honey, beeswax, and mineral wet stone.
The palate is bursting with ripe citrus and pink grapefruit. Full of texture, this wine contains generous amounts on minerality on the finish.
Enjoy now (probably best to wait till you’re home) and over the next 3-5 years.
6 x 750ml bottles, screw cap closure.
