Main Divide Riesling 2018, Waipara Valley
"It's a definite winner!" Sue Courtney
Settled weather in North Canterbury during December provided optimal conditions for flowering. A very hot summer then enabled the fruit to ripen beautifully.
The nose is bursting with aromas of orange blossom, lime, white peach and tropical spices. The palate reveals further impressions of citrus and stone-fruit, with excellent body and concentration. There is a refreshing acidity and minerality to the wine, which balances perfectly with its off-dry finish.

“Main Divide Riesling is my top pick for wine by the glass. Crisp, fresh and steely with delicious fruit and a touch of spice. It's a definite winner!"
