With cult status in the New Zealand wine scene, The Doctors’ Riesling continues to amaze wine critics and delight novices alike. Grown on our stony Condors Bend vineyard at Renwick, the fruit ripens slowly in Marlborough’s cool dry autumn climate, gaining flavour intensity yet retaining all important acidity. Harvested early at low sugars, the grapes were gently pressed, cold settled and given a cool slow fermentation which was arrested around 8.5% alcohol and 33 g/l residual sugar. The final decision on when to stop the wine fermentation is very much decided on acid/sugar balance.
