About The Wine
Single vineyard, old vine Riesling from the organic legends of Marlborough, Anna and Jason Flowerday. Loving the floral aromatic burst of lemon verbena and jasmine, and the smooth, concentrated length that old vines viticulture can give a wine.
Touch of skin contact for structure, and a long cool ferment in stainless steel. Unfined, unfiltered, vegan-friendly - actually, its friendly towards just about everyone who loves refreshing, flavour-packed Riesling.
About Te Whare Ra
Te Whare Ra - commonly referred to as TWR - is a small vineyard and winery located in the Marlborough sub-region of Renwick. The 11Ha vineyard was first planted in 1979 and since 2003 has been owned by winemakers Anna and Jason Flowerday. Low yields and a commitment to organic and biodynamic practices - TWR is genuine artisanal winemaking in a region more famous for large commercial production.
Their aromatic whites - Riesling, Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, Gewurz - have carved out their reputation, but Pinot Noir and Syrah might outshine them all in the long run.
To show off at the dinner table, remember that the 'WH' is pronounced as an 'F'!
