Terrace Edge Liquid Geography Riesling – The Waipara Valley is a very special location for Riesling. The warm days and cool nights provide perfect conditions for growing ripe, rich fruit while also retaining a refreshing citrus acidity. Essential to the balance of the finished wine, this palate tingling poise enhances the wonderfully exotic fruit character. Floral notes add charm alongside a medley of nectarine, lime leaf and liquid honey. Off-dry, it delights the palate with its vibrant, juicy finale. The inclusion of a small percentage of botrytised grapes (so-called ‘noble rot’ which removes water from the grapes, increasing sweetness and flavour) enhances the mid-palate weight and richness. A masterful delight that is fast becoming a cult wine in NZ! 75cl.
Alc. 12.5% by vol. Vegan. Spontaneously purchased in 1999, after exploring the Marlborough wine region, Terrace Edge Wines in the Waipara Valley is the very essence of a family owned and operated business. The North Canterbury property was originally a sheep farm, and the Chapman family began their land conversion by planting 2000 olive trees on the lower terrace. The planting of twelve hectares of vines followed. With no previous experience, the development of the business was taken on with a real trial and error approach. The development of Terrace Edge has not been unlike producing a truly great wine, it requires a real hands-on approach. The whole family is involved in the various aspects of the business.
