Product Overview

The Fletcher Family Riesling is made from a selected part of the Roncenvin Estate in Marlborough’s famous Wairau Valley, and is expertly farmed by Colin, Chris and Michelle Fletcher. The unique stony soils and low vigour Riesling vines produce fantastic grapes which are selectively hand harvested when superbly ripe.

A finely flavoured wine with very pure citrus and floral characters. A lovely minerally texture and juicy finish.
