Grapes sourced from the Upper Moutere Valley in Nelson. This wine was hand harvested and bought to the winery in Marlborough. With a little skin contact, no press cuts and aerobic handling, has given this wine a lovely full palate and ripe, fine phenolics. Cool ferments, using a classic Riesling yeast Siha 7, has given this wine great palate weight and lovely full aromas.

After discovering a lovely low cropping vineyard in the upper Moutere valley planted on shingle soils, I was gifted with a full and ripe block producing a classic Riesling. This wine is fresh dry, floral and has lovely mineral notes. Its clean and dry finish makes this wine a great accompaniment with food.
With vineyards situated in the Waihopai, Awatere and Upper Wairau areas of Marlborough, New Zealand, Ant Moore wines are generally more restrained with minerality, complexity and great balance. Control and hands-on management of the vineyards and the winemaking process, creates rich wines, with ripe flavours and texture and fresh lifted aromas, signatures of Ant Moore Wines.
