Brooding aromas of wet stones, stone fruits and hints of lanolin, make for a complexing introduction. The mouthfeel opens with a burst of sweetness which is immediately tempered by intense stone fruit flavours and crisp acidity. Like a perfectly tree-ripened Central Otago peach, the completeness and beauty of the flavours dissolves the sweetness and sings of our mountainous Bannockburn location.

92/100 - The 2023 Bannockburn Riesling is toasty and cloth-y on the nose, with enoki mushroom, juniper, dried rosemary, leafy herbs and brine. In the mouth, the wine is fierce but light, with structure and spice in line with the sleek flow of fruit and flavor. It's a lovely wine. The residual sugar in this cuvée is 59 grams per litre, pH is 2.83 and total acidity is 9.3. This has 9.5% alcohol and is sealed under screw cap. - Erin Larkin, Wine Advocate

92/100 - Fresh and fruity with melon and yellow plum aromas and flavors with some sliced cooked apple. Sweet pears. Medium-bodied, off dry and a fruity finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink now. Screw cap. - James Suckling 

Riesling from Block 4 of The Elms vineyard was carefully hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, settled for 4-7 days before racking, then fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 4 week fermentation was stopped by chilling when the optimal balance was achieved between the acidity, alcohol and residual sugar (59g/L). Careful winemaking with minimal processing highlights the crisp natural acidity and the Riesling characters are delicately poised in the low alcohol of 9.5%.
