So delicious. So effortless to drink. Such refreshment factor. Yes all the way!
About The Wine
Vigneron Nick Mills files this wine under "Wines For The Thirsty".
Osteiner is a rarely seen Germanic variety that was born of Riesling and Sylvaner. Mills says that the plantings on Rippon make up half of the overall plantings in the world currently.
A light, crunchy and quietly spicy white wine of immense charm and subtlety, this is a lovely entry point into the fascinating world of Rippon Vineyard.
About Rippon Vineyard
Rippon Vineyard is one of the most breathtaking sites in Central Otago.
For over a century the Mills family has farmed this small patch of earth on the banks of Lake Wanaka. Nick Mills is the fourth generation of his family to walk the rows on Rippon. He now farms the site according to biodynamic principles.
The Mills family and Rippon are intrinsically linked. There's a deep connection to the land which Nick translates into their superlative wines.
Pinot Noir, Gamay, Riesling and Gewürztraminer all excel at Rippon. The wines are made with patience and love.
In the wines of Rippon, you can sense everything that is transcendent about terroir-driven winemaking where the story of a place is told through the wines it produces.
