Private Bin | Marlborough
Vintage 2023 
Crack open the screw cap and taste our deliciously crisp Private Bin Riesling brimming with bright flavours of lime, mandarin and delicate florals.
Our Riesling vineyards are from diverse areas within Marlborough, from the upper Waihopai Valley clays soils, to the river terraces in mid-Wairau valley as well as river terraces in the cooler Awatere Valley, this provides us with bright citrus lemon & lime flavours with zippy acidity, this wine can be enjoyed whilst youthful or with several years of bottle aging to develop softer honeyed notes.
The Marlborough growing season started off well with very little frost pressure during spring. Flowering went without a glitch, and due to healthy soil moisture levels the canopies looked lush and vibrant. The start of 2023 summer was mild and unseasonably humid and wet. In February the weather settled and presented us sunny and warm autumn condition that provided excellent conditions for our fruit.

Tasting notes

  • Lemon
  • Florals

Bright lifted aromas reminiscent of spring; white florals and fresh lemon and limes jump out of the glass. The palate is light and crisp showing juicy mandarin and lime flavours with a hint of slatey minerality on the finish. This Private Bin Riesling is an off-dry style displaying excellent fruit sweetness balanced with zesty sherbet-like acidity on the finish.
