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 guy, viticulture is organic and winemaking low intervention, with just a touch of sulphur at bottling.
Stunning dry riesling made from organic grapes near Christchurch in New Zealand's South Island. Taut and linear with crystalline lime and lemon aromas, steely minerality and a tremendously long finish.
