Split Rock Riesling 2019
Shimmering Riesling from Nelson – this is sensational
Named after the distinctive Split Apple Rock in Abel Tasman National Park, this wine is from Austrian born Hermann Seifried, who built his pioneering winery nearby in 1973. All the fruit for Split Rock was selected from Hermann's own vineyards (one planted in the 1970s, the other in the late 1990s) in Nelson, a region well protected from the vagaries of the weather by mountains to the east, west and south. It's pure Riesling, a grape that has once more become popular. The wine is slightly off dry yet with more than enough bracing, natural acidity to make it perfectly balanced. Terrific with lighter Asian cuisine, and fresh shellfish.
