‘With floral, citrus, and stone fruit notes, this zippy Riesling dances on your palate like a 70’s disco. Don your flares and floral party shirt and hustle to that after party. After all, aren't after parties all about embracing those generous, warm, electric vibes?!’

Stomped and left overnight before pressing into 2/3 stainless and 1/3 old puncheons After Party is light straw in colour. It has lemon / citrus notes that jump out of the glass with floral stone fruit that continues through to the palate. The wine has a generous palate weight with sherbert-like acidity running through the middle, maintaining tension.

Rob and Kate Burley's wines, for a number of years made in Victoria, then for the 2019 vintage they relocated to the Upper Moutere Valley in the Nelson sub-region on the north west tip of New Zealand's South Island.’

Aries, the instigator.

Abuzz with energy. Bursting with vitality. Coiled. As the first-born of the zodiac you vibrate with an anticipation for existence. An enthusiasm for taking the world head-on. Impulsive. Intoxicatingly alive.

You are bold and determined, audacious even. Always honest and direct. Although fresh to this game of life, you came to win. Ruled by Mars, your energy is that of the challenger; an assertive virility. Fiery force, blind passion and total confidence.

You are the instigator and the pioneer. Forthright. Impatient for progress. You exist to push boundaries and birth new ideas. The spark of ignition. Burning with passion and fiery drive. You are the leader and the rebel. Optimism and adventure, a thirst for paving the new path.

As the first sign of the zodiac, you act without influence of the other signs as none have existed before you. Like an only child, you are acutely aware of yourself. Empathy and consideration are not your natural forte. Albeit all in innocence, this naiveté can challenge your partnerships and true aspirations for leadership. You treat life so urgently, so involve those around you in the wild ride! Learning to celebrate the contributions of others will temper your ego and help deepen your connections.

Beaming with positivity and armed with an uncomplicated and optimistic attitude to life, you are going places. Fast, loose and breathless.
