Carrick Dry Riesling

Arthur's Vineyard

We make a total of four different Rieslings at Carrick. We find that it is an incredibly versatile grape variety that excels at different levels of sweetness and is particularly interesting when left on its skins for several months.. Riesling does particularly well in Central Otago and the dry version we make at Carrick is perhaps the most transparent of the site on which we grow this grape. It is also the most refreshing and food friendly.

Fermented and aged in oak for 7 months using only wild yeast. The dry Riesling has a sense of depth and width on the palate, which compliments the lime, yuzu and elderflower notes. Delicious with shellfish, vegetable pasta dishes or specifically.. divine with a cheese soufflé.
