Orange zest, wild flowers, red apple and mineral notes greet the taster.
The Cowslip Valley Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley is grown on a cool and sometimes frost prone site with moderately fertile silt soils overlying deep layers of free draining gravel. Good body and complex flavours on the palate are typical for Rieslings grown on this superior site.
Proudly family owned and operated Babich Wines was founded in 1916 by Croatian immigrant Josip Babich. Today, using this near century of winemaking experience, the Babich Family produce great wines from New Zealand's finest wine regions.

Notes: Attractive aromas of orange zest, wild flowers, red apple and mineral notes greet the taster. The palate is layered and juicy with ruby grapefruit, fejoa and apple. Lovely spicy herbal notes entwined the fruit and add intrigue. This finely structured wine is off dry with a beautiful acid balance, crisp and persistent finish.
Serve: Chill to 10-12c, this is ideal with Asian dishes, or try it with mussel and kumara patties, drizzled with home-made lime-spiked mayonnaise.
