Thinking differently is what we do at Yealands. Crafting award winning wines in harmony with nature has seen us lead the world in sustainable winegrowing. But most importantly, it means great tasting wines which don’t cost the earth. Founder Peter Yealands’ vision is to create the world’s most environmentally-friendly wines. Constantly seeking new ways to work, he combines his love of the land with wines as bold as his ambition. These very approachable wines prove that sustainability always rewards with lasting quality.

The Peter Yealands Riesling offers lifted lemon and lime aromas, mixed with a hint of jasmine and elderflower. This lush off-dry wine, offers honey flavours with a crisp citrus zest finish.

VINTAGE SUMMARY: The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in very even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated through the warm growing season. The warmer conditions meant that harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year. The Rieslings produced from this vintage have the bright and refreshing characteristics that we typically see from our Seaview Vineyard. 

Winemaker: Natalie Christensen
Harvest Date: 21st March- 6th April 2018 
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 12.5% pH 3.04 TA 7.76 RS 8.0g/l

The Riesling blocks were harvested separately over a 2 week period from our Seaview Vineyard. The fruit was pressed off gently, separating the free run juice from the pressings, into stainless steel tanks to settle for 72 hours. The free run clear juice was then carefully racked to another stainless steel tank, whilst the pressings were racked to a 1000L French oak oval. They were then each inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture and enhance the aromatic Riesling flavours. Once fermentation was completed the wine was racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Product Reviews

John Saker 1 March 2012

“Riesling has been a quiet success story from the very first vintage at the sprawling Yealands vineyard estate in the Awatere Valley. The structural austerity of this dry wine is nicely balanced by a core of flavoursome (crunchy apples, white peach) fruit. 4 Stars, Best Buy.”
