Escarpment Hinemoa Riesling has ripe fruit giving a fleshy richness on the nose, with tropical fruit and peach enriching the mid-palate. There is enough lime to lighten and to balance the sweetness, yet the finish is rich, ripely fruited and juicily complex.

Grown in Escarpment's Te Muna Road vineyard in what can only be considered to be a remarkable year for Riesling. A very sweet style (120g/l of residual sugar) has been created from individually selected bunches of grapes. The juice was carefully left in contact with the skins for 24 hours and then gently pressed to yield the precious high sugar must. Under the German classification, this wine would be of Beerenauslese quality such was the sugar content of the grapes at harvest.
