Carrick Dry Riesling

Arthur's Vineyard, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Carrick's wines are all about texture. We look to produce a diverse range of wines that will accompany the beautiful creations produced in the restaurant on site at Carrick. The 2017 Dry Riesling is mineral by nature, with aromatics that would lead you to think the wine was heavier on the palate. When in fact the natural acidity obtained from our vineyards helps to deliver a long refreshing finish. 

A palate cleansing wine that screams out for oysters or diamond clams.

Vintage

Our Dry Riesling is hand-harvested and picked slightly later than the other two Rieslings, which helps to bring a riper fruit spectrum to balance the high acidity, when sugar is no longer playing a role. The fruit is whole-bunch pressed and fermented naturally with wild yeasts. Fermented and aged in old oak barriques, which give further depth and complexity to this wine.
