Black Peak Wanaka Central Otago Riesling 2015

22-Mar-2016
Clearly winemaker James McElrea is a thoughtful man with very high standards. Working with Dan and Sarah-Kate Dineen at Maude in Wanaka, Central Otago has given him valuable experience and insights. His first two own-label wines, under the ‘Black Peak’ brand, sourced from local fruit, have been excellent. I’ve rated the 2014 Riesling (click here to see my review) and the 2014 Pinot Noir (see my review here) both at 5-star. James has now released his 2015 Riesling. The vintage has produced lighter Rieslings in the district, so he has held onto the wine a little longer for it to develop greater richness. Here is my review. www.blackpeakwines.co.nz
