93+ Points
A very typical and satisfying Gewurz: sweet (but not too sweet), floral and waxy with a fresh finish. Cicada from Riverby Estate has a proven track record with Marlborough's local specialty - beautiful aromatics - as evidenced by the stellar reviews for this one. But this super-value wine is not made every year, so don't dally.

Overview

Grape

Gewurztraminer

Its Origins

A major factor in Riverby’s success is the total control over all grape production on the single estate vineyard. A significant portion of the vineyard consists of vines with considerable age and this is complemented by slightly younger vines utilising modern clones. This combination of vine age and meticulous clonal selection is readily apparent in the high quality fruit being produced. Vines were first planted in 1989; on land that had previously been used for cropping and sheep farming. Further plantings have continued over the years, until now over 70 hectares are planted out in Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Semillon, and Syrah. The most recent planting is of Gruner Veltliner. As part of Riverby’s focus on viticultural excellence, yields are kept very low and several varieties are handpicked. Sustainable grape-growing techniques are practiced throughout the whole grape-growing and winemaking cycle.

What The Critics Say

95/100 Sam Kim

"The opulent, delectable flavours as well as perfumed aromas are irresistible. This gorgeous wine is filled with mango, lychee, yellow peach and floral characters with a touch of Turkish Delight. The palate is concentrated and powerful with an expansive mouthfeel and velvety texture, beautifully enhanced by subtle sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity. At its best: now to 2020. $24.00. "
