Konrad Wines is a family owned wine estate producing a premium range of handcrafted and flavoursome wines. The estate is owned by Konrad Hengstler with the support of his wife Sigrun, and their sons - Conrad and Carlo. The family planted their first vines in 1996, and currently owns 40 hectares of vineyards in the Wairau and Waihopai Valleys.
The fruits used to craft Konrad Bunch Selection Riesling were hand selected, whole bunch pressed, and fermented. The resulting wine features a pale straw colour with green highlights along the edges. The perfumed nose exudes pure and delicate aromas of citrus blossom, red apple, lime and white flower coupled with underlying mineral tones. This wonderful Riesling replicates similar characters on the fresh and juicy palate, which presents a fine balance between the vibrant fruit and refreshing acidity. The aromas and flavours offer an elegant mouthfeel, altogether leading to a structured finale. Crafted to be relished while young, this delightful white wine can also be cellared up to a decade. Drink it with spicy seafood or Asian cuisine to enjoy an appeasing Sunday afternoon meal.
