Once upon a time, Riesling was the Germanyist of German grapes, in all of Germany. Storming down the Autobahn in a black Mercedes-Benz, with a glove compartment full of Bratwurst, yelling 'Schnell' at poor Dutch tourists toddling a long at a mere 98mph. It's much more international now. Look at wines such as this, a classic late harvest Riesling, yet influenced by the terroir of New Zealand. Don't get us wrong, Riesling's still German, it's just a more modern German, the international jetsetter that refers to his mobile as "mein handy." We love you Riesling, whatever beautiful place you're grown in, never forget your roots!



Tupari takes its name from the dramatic cliffs, forming the Upper Awatere Valley of Marlborough, New Zealand where the Turnbull family and pioneering winemaker Glenn Thomas have collaborated to create wines of distinction. The Turnbull estate is situated on north-facing river flats, overlooking the Awatere River. Here, David Turnbull works with the terroir of the valley’s unique terraces, employing sustainable viticulture to harness the special characteristics of the land. His carefully nurtured grapes allow, renowned Awatere winemaker, Glenn Thomas to create sophisticated, elegant wines that display arresting flavour intensity and finely-honed structure and balance. Their combined talents form an impressive partnership committed to producing a portfolio of exceptional wines. The Tupari Riesling block is situated on a thin terrace stretching along the top of the cliff face, with magnificent valley views. Warm days and cool nights combined to create the distinguishing character and rich flavours, typical of this Awatere Valley wine. 2014 was the first time Tupari produced a Late Harvest, leaving grapes on the vine an extra month to shrivel and concentrate. The resultant wine is a luscious desert wine with intense aromas of marmalade, honey and blossom.
