Vynfields ‘Bliss’ Sparkling Riesling 2011

Was it inevitable that Kaye McAulay and John Bell produce a sparkling Riesling? All the makings have been in place for some time – quality Riesling fruit, a keen sense to explore different styles and variations, the familiarity of sparkling wines of the world including the Sekt wines of Germany, and the expertise of winemakers Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling. In a bold move, Vynfields have launched their ‘Bliss' Sparkling Riesling with the 2011 vintage. Made from the same fruit that is destined for their superb ‘Classic' Riesling, with the result of a wine that expands the portfolio range for them and the premium sparkling wine offerings in New Zealand. Reminiscent of a sparkling Muscat rather than a flinty Sekt, the Vynfields ‘Bliss' is in a populist style for sure, but done extremely well and with a panache that will appeal to the serious consumer who understands and enjoys all types of wines for different situations. www.vynfields.com
