Boneline Hellblock Riesling North Canterbury 22 (Black Label)
Edgy by name and by nature, Hellblock Riesling tastes like lime zest, ripe peach and lemon curd in a layered and complex off dry style. The Boneline's evocatively named Hellblock Riesling comes from grapes grown on a windy as hell gravel river terrace in a spot along the Waipara River that gets as hot as hell during summer, with wind to challenge Wellington on a blustery day. This is a stunning RIesling as a result of these difficult climatic factors, which decimate crops so that the grapes that do hang on for dear life provide outstandingly concentrated depths of flavour.
This is a medium dry style with light body and super impressive purity; like smelling a lime zest combined with fresh green grapes, a note of tangerine here, white lily there. Complexity to burn and a beautiful drink, year round, lightly chilled with your favourite friends or person.
