Wine Summary Image

The Reserve VS Riesling is named for Vivienne Ritchie who (along with her husband Robert) planted the first vines at Delatite in 1968. Vivienne’s Block is only 0.6ha and was part of the original vineyard, so the vines date back to 1968. It’s only made in Delatite’s best years and the vines and winemaking are carefully managed to ensure ultra-premium quality.

Expert Reviews

Pale colour; a striking green apple and quartz mineral bouquet; the palate is taut, racy and very dry, moving toward austere, yet finishing with generosity and grace. Ben Edwards, Rating 92, 17th July 2012

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Aroma/ Palate

The cool condition of 2011 has resulted in very intense lime characters coming from the fruit, with some delightful floral aromatics coming through with rapier-like acidity running through the palate. The wild ferment has added some round complexity to balance this tight Riesling.

Cellaring

This Riesling with its high natural acidity will age wonderfully for more than fifteen years developing warm toasty characters and hints of honey to complement the fruits lime flavours.
