Made by Eveline Fraser (ex Cloudy Bay) this wine offers the classic aromatic Riesling nose of zesty citrus fruit along with an almost-Germanic level of minerality. Undoubtedly thirst-quenching, crisp and juicy, the palate has vibrant tropical fruit and cleansing mineral tones.

In the vineyard

Insight Riesling is grown on river terraces containing stony silt loam soils and alluvial gravels. Considerable stone is evident in some parts. Row layout is true north-south facing so to maximise exp osure to sunshineThe grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the early morning to ensure the fruit arrived at the winery cold and with no possibility of oxidation.

In the winery

Once in the winery, each berry is taken from the stems and the juice pressed out on a slow gentle press cycle.Only free run juice is taken, so it in its purist form. Like the Sauvignon Blanc, the wi ne is made in refrigerated stainless steel to preserve the natural aromatics.

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    "Insight's home is tucked away in the low hills of the Waihopai Valley, which is even cooler than the main Wairau plains…. an amazing depth of flavour, with refreshing lemon and lime zip that seems to go on forever. " Frankie Cook, 2012 Vintage
