Spy Valley ‘Envoy’ Dry Riesling 2016

20-Jul-2017
The ‘Envoy’ wines are the limited bottlings of Spy Valley in Marlborough, made from small lots of distinctive and high quality grapes grown by viticulturist Adam McCone, and made into naturally balanced wines by Paul Bourgeois and Richelle Collier. The fruit is sensitively handled to ensure the character of the fruit and their provenance is preserved and showcased. From my tastings, the wines are of extremely high quality and interest, sophisticated and often challenging, which I’m sure is the aim of the team at Spy Valley. Here, I review the new 2016 Envoy Dry Riesling, this style not made as frequently as the others, the previous Dry Rieslings made only in 2014, 2013 and 2008. The fruit came from the two oldest blocks in the estate. www.spyvalleywine.co.nz
