Peregrine Riesling 2014 - Sept 2018 Decanter review
Taking a 'hands on' approach to winemaking since 1998, the McLachlan family strive to produce wines that embody the absolute best of Central Otago. "This passion for the land runs in our family, and is a hallmark of Peregrine as a business."
There was a warm early spring, followed by a cooler mid-summer and a warm late summer. The harvest in autumn 2014 was typically settled.
The grapes were picked by hand before some were whole bunch pressed and others were crushed then pressed. Each batch of grapes was fermented seperately and the wines were blended together following the fermentation.
This Riesling is medium dry in style with flavours of orange blossom and mandarin.It has a lovely balance of sweetness and fresh acidity. It matches well with Pad Thai, pork belly and Asian infused, spicy dishes. This wine has the structure to be able to age for up to 10 years.
