Lele Orange Riesling
Country: New Zealand
Lele is the project of Liam Kelleher, one of the original founders of pioneering London natural wine shops/bars Noble Fine Liquor, P. Franco and Bright, who returned to NZ in 2019 to start making wine near his hometown of Christchurch in the South Island. As you would expect from a natural wine pioneer, viticulture is organic and winemaking low intervention, with just a touch of sulphur at bottling.
Organic orange riesling from New Zealand's south island macerated in whole bunches before being pressed off to ferment in stainless steel. A lifted, fragrant orange wine with floral aromas of chamomile and orange blossom with a vibrant thread of acidity. No added sulphur.
