Wairau River Estate Marlborough Summer Riesling
Our Summer Riesling is a single vineyard wine, which is grown right outside the winery. Our Riesling is made in a low alcohol style. We hand-pick the grapes slightly early so it carries a higher residual sugar but with a mineral acidity which carries right through the palate, this keeps the wine refreshing and crisp. It’s a perfect aperitif wine and it pairs well with rich foods.LEARN MORE

BBQ Chicken Salad with Sweet Chilli Sauce
The spice of the Chilli and the smokiness of the BBQ chicken is offset by the off dry style of this wine. Very moreish!
