The Boulders Martinborough Riesling 2009 is an off dry Riesling with citrus and stone fruit aromas. This wine won a SILVER medal at the New Zealand International Wine Show 2010. It is an off-dry style of wine and is a good way to kick start your affair with riesling if you're not already aware if its charms. Full stone fruit flavours with good acid balance allows this wine to be enjoyed as an aperitif or to accompany a meal of fish, chicken or Asian flavours.

It is a is straw coloured with and light gold tints. Stonefruit dominates the nose of this wine; peaches, nectarines, apricots. Mingled with this are floral notes (lemon flower and orange flower) backed by gentle spice notes.
The Milcrest Estate Nelson Pinot Gris 2010 won SILVER at the Bragato Wine Awards 2010. It is a classic concentrated wine showing strong varietal characters. Tropical fruit, pears and spice combine with a firm backbone of minerality and acidity. Oily and opulent textures fill the mouth providing a pleasant mouthfeel, good balance and a long clean spicy finish.
