Ataahua Riesling 6 pack - A trio of vintages


Three beautiful Waipara Rieslings (two bottles of each), each with 4.5 and 5 star ratings, matured in our cellar for your enjoyment! 2 bottles 2016 Riesling; 2 bottles 2017; Riesling; 2 bottles 2018 Riesling
Our Ataahua Riesling will develop in the cellar for several years, but is equally delicious now with a wide range of foods- seafood and cuisine with Thai and Japanese influences, or as an aperitif with smoked salmon and avocado. Drink this now or cellar for up to eight years.
Ataahua 2018 Riesling, 5 stars This is gorgeously fruited and delightfully composed, showing golden peach, orange peel, mango and rich floral characters on the nose. The palate is equally attractive with succulent fruit intensity and excellent mid palate weight, wonderfully complemented by seductive sweetness and refreshing acidity. Very long on the finish. Style: Medium. At its best: now to 2022. Sam Kim – Wine Orbit Ataahua 2017 Riesling, 5 stars Beautifully ripe and fragrant, the immediately appealing bouquet shows lemon curd, spiced apple, orange peel and subtle honey complexity. The palate delivers excellent focus and juicy fruit intensity, backed by a hint of sweetness, which is perfectly balanced by refreshing acidity, leading to a lingering tasty finish. Sam Kim – Wine Orbit Ataahua 2016 Riesling, 94 pts Floral, fragrant and fruity with a mineral core and ripe tree fruits bouquet. On the palate – tense, fruity and just dry with a vibrant acidity and satin texture. Flavours of white fleshed fruit, citrus and apple. Floral too with a white blossom and white rose. A finely tuned wine with a complexity, delicacy and finish. Great balance and length. Drink now and through 2026. Cameron Douglas MS
