Reviews and accolades 

Kritiker über Rippon Rippon Mature Vine Riesling 2019James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com): 95/100. Lime zest, lemon blossom, white peach, flint and white pepper on the nose. Medium-bodied with sharp, bracing acidity. So vibrant and compact with a mineral backbone. Really minerally, tart and dry on the finish. Better from 2023.

 

Tasting note

Very fragrant with mouthwatering aromas of fresh and ripe lemons and impressive, stony, flinty notes. The weight and freshness is staggering. Refined, long and piercing, the lemon and grapefruit flavors carry so fresh. Lurking towards the end of the first mouthful is substantial phenolic power and it soon starts to take charge of the wine... and give it its sense of place.

Vineyard site: Lake Wanaka, Central Otago, New Zealand.

Soil: Schist - the metamorphic mother rock, rich in foliated mica and quartzite is deposited as glacial moraines, coarse-layered gravels, ancient lake-bed clays and wind-blown loess.

Winemaking: Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery's sorting table undamaged and intact. It is gently crushed by foot and left to macerate on skins overnight. The fruit was then whole bunch pressed and run, by gravity, into a settling tank. 12 hours of settling is passed after which the juice is racked, retaining fine lees, into a horizontal fermentation tank (stainless-steel foudre).

The winery's resident yeast population (non-inoculated) took 23 days to complete cuvaison. The ferments reached temperatures between 8-28°C. Total time on primary lees: 90 days.

Cellaring potential: 2028+

Produced and bottled with loving care by: Rippon Vineyard and Winery Ltd., 246 Wanaka-Mount Aspiring Road, Wanaka 9381, New Zealand
