This special Riesling from Boneline is full of the mineral character derived from Waipara's lime soils. Once again labelled "Dry Riesling", this wonderful example captures the grape's crisp citrus and tree fruit, while real weight and texture serve to smooth over its refreshing, bright acidity. A superb drop from a highly promising producer and region for the grape, the Boneline is a serious aperitif or accompaniment to white meats.

Overview

Grape

Riesling

Its Origins

Boneline are a Waipara operation with a serious focus on terroir. Waipara’s lime-rich soils and nearly identical climate to Chablis allow Boneline to explore stylistic bridge points between the more restrained French and more brightly fruited characteristics of New Zealand terroir wines. The name Boneline itself invokes a network of ideas linking their wines and terroir to the primordial history of the site, directly referring to fossilised fish bones that have been found around the Waipara River - which also appear on their labels - and indirectly referring to the lime in the soil, itself a residue of fish calcium that forms the various bone-like substrata of many Waipara vineyards and makes the region such a special place for wine. Bringing to their work a broad range of human and marketing as well as winemaking talents, Boneline look set to define new possibilities for their exceptional place and its offerings.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Bob Campbell

"Flavoursome and quite textural riesling with lime, wet stone, mineral and wild flower flavours. Tangy, dry wine with an ethereal texture and a pleasing acid tension. A very good example of dry riesling in a typical Waipara style"
