Black Peak Riesling 2016 Central Otago 48gpl RS & 9% abv
Juicy, fresh and very lush bouquet of ripe citrus, apple and apricot stone, citrus blossom and cold wet stone mineral suggestions. On the palate - very crisp and fresh attack with the acidity speaking first, very quickly the residual sugar offers contrast - both emphasizing flavours of white peach, citrus and red apple; mineral spike shows and a lovely lengthy finish. Great wine mid-summer as an aperitif (chilled), will suit fresh ceviche styles dishes and some desserts.

Black Peak Pinot Noir 2015 Central Otago
Intensely fragrant bouquet with black cherry, dried herb dark raspberry, spices, oak and bracken; vanilla and clove, toasty wood and plenty of Otago Pinosity. On the palate - dark berry fruits of cherry and plum, dried herb and bracken, toasty oak, clove and vanilla, fine to moderate tannins and medium+ acidity; youthful tense and lengthy. A lovely wine, but still in the throws of youth. Decant for service or enjoy from 2018 through 2026.
