Glasnevin ‘Limited Release’ Waipara Riesling 2015

21-Jul-2016
With considerable wine growing experience in the Waipara Valley, the Johns family established Glasnevin Wine Estates to express the special qualities of the loamy and sandy gravel formed from the Waipara alluvium. The Johns see low fertility and vigour, excellent drainage and aeration, and low yields as special traits, and the wines produced from these soils have a minerally component. The first release came with the 2007 vintage, and I have been impressed with the qualities. The Johns have their winemaking based at Pegasus Bay, but have contracted different talented and experienced winemakers for various wines. Here, I review the ‘Limited Release’ Riesling 2015, made by Petter Evans. www.glasnevinwines.co.nz
