The menu

Wairau River Botrytised Riesling, New Zealand

Type of wine: White dessert wine
Closure: Screw cap
Country: New Zealand
Region: Marlborough

Producer: Wairau River Wines

Grape variety(s): Riesling

Character:

An intense, aromatic nose with notes of honey, passion fruit and citrus. Very elegant taste, with marmalade and dried apricot. The use of wood gives the toffee and vanilla character, while the healthy acidity provides extra complexity and a long fresh aftertaste.

Winemaking:

The sticks, planted in 1995, are on volcanic soil. The harvest takes place in September, the grapes are placed on wooden racks to dry until early March of the following year. As a result, the grape loses 50% of its weight, the sugar content is then 25 to 28%. After destemming, the peels are soaked for 18 hours, followed by a gentle pressing, after which solid particles from the juice settle out for 12 hours. Selected yeast initiates the fermentation, which takes place 60% in stainless steel tanks and 40% in small oak barrels. This low-temperature fermentation lasts about 2 months until May. The alcohol percentage is then 12 to 13 degrees, and 140 g/l of residual sugar remains. This is followed by a period of 10 to 12 months of maturation in oak barrels.

The grapes for this wine are hand-picked from the Rapaura vineyard on the Wairau River next to the winery. This area has a habit of producing intensely sweet and flavored fruit in special years. After careful selection and delicate pressing, the juice is transferred to French oak barriques and partly stainless steel for fermentation.

Producer details:

Wairau River Wines was founded in 1978 by Phil and Chris Rose. They were the first to plant vineyards on the north side of the Wairau River. Until 1991 they only grew grapes and sold them to Cloudy Bay, among others. Then the couple, together with their 5 children, decided to start producing wines themselves. The entire family is active in the company; from cook in their restaurant to assistant winemaker. Allen McWilliams has been the winemaker since 2004. Wairau River is one of the largest independently owned family businesses in Marlborough. In 2007, the family owns 210 hectares spread over 5 vineyards, all located on old riverbeds, which consist of large to medium-sized round boulders. 80% is planted with Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Viognier. Wairau means 'differing waters' in the language of the original population, the Maori. They only make wine from their own vineyards, some of which are certified as organic.

Area data:

Marlborough is located in the far north of New Zealand's South Island and is also the largest wine region in the country. The first vineyards were planted here in 1973. As early as the 1980s it became apparent that very remarkable wines could be produced here, mainly from the Sauvignon grape. The ideal conditions for wine growing in Marlborough are a combination of sufficient hours of sunshine, the stony, poor soil, plenty of sun and the cooling sea breeze, which ensures even ripening of the grapes, guaranteeing the preservation of fruit and acidity. The sea is only 10 kilometers away. Other varieties have also been introduced, especially Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.

Wairau River has its own harvesting machines to ensure harvesting at the best time, without being dependent on other companies. In 2002, a completely new and revolutionary winery was built. The entire process takes place indoors under one roof and is kept at a constant temperature, while it is normal in this area that tanks are also located outside. The water from the winery and vineyards is reused using the unique 'Live Water Treatment System'. This does not use chemicals, such as chlorine, but bacteria to obtain clean and oxygen-rich water again.

Serve with:

Desserts in which fruit is combined with ice cream.

Serving temperature: 12 to 14 C

Allergens: sulphites

Excellente reviews op Trustpilot (4.7)

“Een heerlijke beleving, genoten van een voortreffelijke maaktijd. Keurig verpakt, duidelijk omschreven wat je moet doen om ECHT te genieten. Wat een mooie formule!”

Corinne Wisboom

“We have ordered Sous for our anniversary dinner. Since we have two kids under three, it is not always possible to arrange a good night out. This way we could enjoy fine cuisine at the leisure of our home while the two troublemakers sleep peacefully. Delivery was smooth, preparation was easy, and tasting was ecstatic!”

Dalya Samur

“Perfect every box is unique. We have ordered for the first time during corona and many times since then. Also quite some time as a present for my friends a perfect surprise on their doorstep! Cooled delivery service is the best! Would reccomend 100%”

F. Froukje

“Besides the great concept,diverse choice and outstanding performance,communicating with Sous was next level. Customer’s experience first. Very very happy and before I forget; the food is delicious!”

J. S. De Lange

“Beide boxen (Ron’s Rames en Thai Boat) sloten qua smaken en uitvoering prima op elkaar aan ! Doen we zeker vaker!!”

Juke Matlung

“Delicious menu! Tasty and easy to prepare. You have to provide a nice ambiance yourself (nice plates, candles, music). If you create this romantic setting it will be a true 'night out'. Of course you have to go into the kitchen yourself to do the minimum of preparation, but it is also nice that you can make these beautiful creations on the plate yourself. Recommended!”

Karin

“The choice of menu and the delivery went very smooth! A great way to have a lovely diner at home with your guests, without being in the kitchen all the time. So all the time for catching up and enjoying great amazing food. Definitely something to do more often and try out the various restaurants.”

Kim Vossen-Potters

“I received this Surprise Restaurant Dinner meal prepared by Ron, the day before my birthday, from my sister-in-law who lives in Spain. I say Surprise Restaurant Dinner, because that's the ultimate experience I got after I unpacked the box, heated it according to the simple instructions and then enjoyed it with my husband of 48 years. The guy who had delivered it had given me a warm smile and said: enjoy it. ”

Linda Heymans De Souza

“We are a huge fan of Sous; as date night out of home with a baby isn’t always that easy, we often have date nights at home with a Sous box. This last time we had the Dijk 9 Herfstmenu and of all the Sous boxes we ordered the past years, this was absolutely the best!”

Marjon

“Information on the site matches reality. Ordering is simple. Delivery easy to follow online and exactly on time. And the quality of the food ia always a reason for joy. For us there is no need to get in the car and drive to a restaurant anymore. And nobody has to be 'the bob' anymore.”

Peter

“Het was heerlijk. Zowel de indonesische rijsttafel als de Chinese shared dining vlees waren lekker. In december gaan we voor de Dick Middelweerd menu. Ik vind dit een super formule. Ga ik vaker gebruik van maken.”
