Urlar Riesling 2019 (12 Bottles) Wairarapa

by Negociants 0 orders



The grapes were harvested according to flavour and skin ripeness. To allow the purity of fruit flavours from the vineyard to be expressed we have fermented most of our grapes in stainless steel at low temperatures whilst adding complexity and mid palate weight with the balance fermented in old oak barrels. Subtle use of skin ferment and skin contact gives texture to this wine. The combination of these portions provides a wine full of varietal fruit expression balanced with texture and concentration. A multi-dimensional wine.



About Urlar wines

Economic and environmental sustainability are our driving principals. These practices are about giving life back to the soil and managing the vineyard as a balanced sustainable unit. This includes organic practices such as recycling through composts and liquid manures and increasing plant bio diversity.

Using the biodynamic farming and gardening calendar, the rhythmic influences of the sun, moon, planets and stars are recognized and worked where possible. This commitment has been recognised and rewarded recently when we won the Hills Harvest and Gallagher Innovation Awards.

The result is beautiful, clean, true wines that have not impacted negatively on the soil as they have been crafted.

Our wine collection reflects the nature of our environment and includes harmonious aromatics; Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris and vibrant Pinot Noir.

Our 31-hectare single vineyard is located on ancient free-draining soils and our inter-row crop rotation maintains healthy soils full of life and biodiversity. Our seven year crop rotation maintains healthy soils and vines. Every seven years, one row in seven will be planted in a variety of plants and wild flowers. These flowers, such as buckwheat, lupins, stinging nettles, dandelions and yarrow provide crucial protection to the vineyard as they attract beneficial insects that will kill off unwanted pests and predators that can destroy the vines, leaves or roots.
