Scout 2021 Central Otago Riesling (6 Bottles) Waipara, New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



Fruit is sourced from a super steep north-facing slope on the edge of a glacial terrace. An amazing site that is owned and farmed organically by Mount Edward Winery. Soils are a mixture of greywacke and schist glacial rock with a thin covering of wind-blown loess.

Drawing on Sarah’s experience working in Germany, the fruit was handpicked, whole bunch pressed to tank for a quick settle before a long, slow (three months) wild ferment. The wine was left unsulphured on lees for a further nine months before bottling.

About Scout Wines

Sarah Adamson, Winemaker at Scout Wines

Growing up in the Deep South of New Zealand, winemaking wasn’t even talked about when considering career options in my final years of school. Luckily, my parents had a great cellar and interest in wine which in turn sparked an enthusiasm

With a love for science and the outdoors I began to explore all options and found myself chatting to Invercargill’s only other Viticultural graduate. After a year of BSc and LLB, I left Canterbury University to pursue a career in winemaking. There was no turning back, and I have no regrets!

My favourite part of winemaking is blending. I love seeing all the parcels and batches come together to create what is going to be in the bottle.
