The Spinyback lizard is a true survivor of the dinosaur age dating back over 60 million years and a donation from each sale is made to help its conservation. Spinyback Riesling has aromas of citrus blossom and green apple with lovely weight in the mouth and crunchy fresh apple flavours.
Spinyback Riesling is produced by Waimea Estates. Waimea Estates founders, Trevor and Robyn Bolitho planted their first vines in 1993 on the stony alluvial Waimea Plains in the beautiful Nelson region.
In 1997 the first of the Waimea wines were crafted and the very first wine, the 1997 Waimea Sauvignon Blanc, received the runner-up trophy at the Winestate Australasian Wine Awards.
Fast forward 22 years, 24 trophies and 133 gold medals and Waimea Estates is still very much family owned and operated.
Trevor and Robyn’s son Ben joined the company full time in 2001 after completing his engineering apprenticeship and building many of the winery tanks and equipment. He then undertook his viticulture qualification and developed a great passion for viticulture. Today he is Chief Viticulturist and in 2010 he became the General Manager.
