Leaning Rock Central Otago Riesling 2014

17-Dec-2015
Leaning Rock is the Central Otago lifestyle and winegrowing venture of Dhana Pillai and Mark Hesson who are geologists by profession. They purchased a 12 ha property on Hillview Road outside Alexandra in 1991 and produced their first vintage in 1994. They operate Leaning Rock to be as close to self-sufficiency as possible, their property featuring 5 ha of pine forest, with plantings of fruits and nuts, as well as 3 ha dedicated to vineyard. The focus is Pinot Noir with Riesling and small numbers of Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Schonburger (Rosa Muskat) vines. Dhana and Mark are self-taught, but with the input of the local wine fraternity have learned to tend the vineyard and make the wines on site. Their passion comes through. Here, I review the 2014 Riesling. www.leaningrock.co.nz
