The Doctors Riesling is now enjoying cult status in the New Zealand wine scene. The Doctors’ Riesling continues to amaze wine critics and novices alike.
Grown on the stony "Condor's bend" vineyard at Renwick the fruit ripens slowly, in Marlborough’s cool dry autumn climate, gaining flavour interesting yet retaining all important acidity.
Harvested early at low sugars the grapes are gently pressed, cold settled and given a cool slow fermentation which was arrested around 8.9% alcohol and 44g/l residual sugar. The final decision on when to stop the wine fermentation is very much decided on taste and acid/sugar balance.
