A sublte, fine and delicate wine – yet very aromatic and perfumed; distinctively fruity and bright citrus aromas. The palate offers a combination of fresh lemon blossom, peach, apricot and ripe pears. All this follows with a touch of honey and hints of nougat – adding balance, complexity and great mouth feel. Isabel Rieslings are renowned for their dry and crisp finish matched by richness of texture…with a dash of ‘lime margarita’!
The ’07 is a wine of many layers with serious age-worthiness…but for those of us who can’t wait, a perfect pairing now with spicy Thai or Indian cuisine.
“Stylish Marlborough Riesling with good weight and concentration. Nicely balanced and all the better for spending a year in the bottle although the citrus and mineral flavours are still fresh and pristine.”

“This is an irresistible wine, even for non-Riesling drinkers out there. It’s fine, pure and delicate on the nose displaying grapefruit, floral and chalky mineral characters. The palate is concentrated and finely textured with a beautifully flowing mouthfeel and bright acidity. It’s dry but certainly not acidic or bitter. The wine is beautifully harmonised and just starting to show a touch of toasty flavours. At its best: now to 2012. Dec 2009.”
