Vynfields ‘Bliss’ Sparkling Riesling 2012


This is the second release of a sparkling Riesling wine from John Bell and Kaye McAulay of Vynfields in Martinborough. It seemed a bit of a strange move to make such a different styled wine from the rest of the Vynfields range, seemingly populist, rather than traditional or serious as the rest of the wines from this organic and biodynamic estate. In reality, the Sekt wines of Germany are well-established, and the backgrounds of winemakers Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling bestow them with an expertise in this category of wine that few others in this country have. Designed to be a limited-production wine, its success has put considerable pressure on John and Kaye to produce more, but that would take away from the other Riesling wines, which are foundation stones for Vynfields' quality reputation. This is clearly a quandary that is more a positive and enviable one! www.vynfields.com
