Winemakers Tasting Notes
Our 2013 Riesling is a wonderfully fresh and zesty wine, full of lemon, lime and Alexandra minerality. We balance these characteristics with moderate to high acidity, making a crisp wine with a beautifully clean finish in an off dry style. We like our Riesling to have just a hint of residual sugar to balance the acidity, providing a complete Riesling experience for lovers of this variety. This wine is ideal as an aperitif or a superb match with Pacific Asian flavours.
Shaky Bridge Wines is located in the stunningly beautiful Alexandra Basin of Central Otago, New Zealand. Our source vineyards are situated below the 45th Parallel in the southern most wine growing region on the globe. Our location is ideally suited to the creation of the aromatic varieties of white wines, alongside Pinot Noir which is our primary variety.
Sourcing fruit from 6 distinct blocks that vary in age from 10 - 30+ years, Shaky Bridge Wines owns one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various locations, soil types and clones used within each block provide our winemaker, Dave Grant, with a virtual painters pallet of flavours to create multi-dimensional wines of exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.

We de-stemmed, crushed and loaded a small amount of Riesling grapes into a tank press. We pressed the juice into stainless steel vats for fermentation. At the conclusion of primary fermentation, the wine was lightly sterile filtered and stabilized for bottling. The winemaking style is in sync with our overall philosophy of non-intervention by simply allowing our terroir to show. The quality of the grapes we harvest from our vineyards allows for this very simple approach to winemaking.
