Greystone Organic Petillant Natural 2021, North Canterbury

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Nov-2021
Cloudy pale yellow, youthful colour, moderately fine persistent bead. The nose is soft, aromas of citrus, floral melded with creamy lees. Medium-bodied, dryish to taste, the mousse is vibrant and creamy. Bright citrus aromas of lime, lemon interweave pineapple, apple skin and blossom; acidity persist with creamy lees to a lengthy finish. The wine is fresh and youthful with a vibrant citrus core; jasmine fragrance is lifted on the finish with a hint of ginger powder. This is a vigorous, delicious Riesling Pet-Nat with a pristine citrus and apple core, jasmine and juice acidity. Match with pork rillette and breakfast pancakes over the next 2 years. Handpicked, fermented to 17 g/l RS, then bottled without filtration or sulphur, fermentation continued in the bottle to dry. The end product has 12% alc, 3.41g/l RS, 3 months elevage. No added sulphur, non-disgorged. BioGro organic certified, vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $43
