Description
 
In 1974, Lois and the late Rolfe Mills moved back to the family farm in Wanaka. Acting largely on a hunch born in the schist slopes of the Douro Valley many years earlier, they planted a few short rows of experimental vines on a small steep bank above their house. Despite the mostly negative opinions of the viticultural experts of the time, the climate data that Rolfe collected was encouragement enough for them to plant their first commercial vineyard block in 1982. The growing belief they had in the site’s potential to produce fine wine was soon to be realised.

The 2021 Mature Vine Riesling is pure and tight on the nose, with saffron, lemon pith, green apple and brine. In the mouth, the wine is quiet and pretty, layered with cloth and beeswax, and it’s compact, in its way. The finish spools and splays, but I did just learn something interesting: the wine went through malolactic fermentation. It is pillowy and gently nutty with a walnut character. 12.5% alcohol, sealed under Diam. Wine Advocate 92
