Tasting Notes

Colour Light Gold
Nose Sassy aromatics of lime, citrus blossom and honeysuckle dance beside sweet hints of botrytis.
Palate A gentle fizz bubbles beneath racy flavours of lemon sherbet, green apple, honeysuckle and mandarin. Just the right acidity to balance the higher sugar content with a long, mineral driven finish.
Food Pairing Pan seared flounder with parsley sauce.
Cellaring 3-5 Years
Notes Hand harvest with keen attention to detail, this Riesling is made from the infamous Dry River Road. 31g R/S disguises the low alcohol percentage and a slight effervescence sets it apart from other wines.

For Tim and Margaret Coney, what was first envisaged as a gentle descent into middle-aged retirement turned into a thriving bustle of vine tending, winemaking, marketing and and cafe-running, in the time-honoured tradition of manual labour. The Coney’s love of music, the basis for their logo, is celebrated in individual wine names and song on their website.

The Trio Café offers guests a quintessential vineyard experience, with Margaret’s cuisine matched with the award-winning Coney wines as they dine amongst the vines in an elegant courtyard with a vineyard vista. The irrepressible Tim provides informative and amusing tastings.
First established in 1978, located just over 75 minutes east of Wellington on North Island, New Zealand, Martinborough is fast becoming a celebrated wine region thanks to its sought after Pinot Noirs and aromatic Sauvignon blancs which are both known to be full in flavor with a polished finish. In only three decades, Martinborough has been revolutionized as a leading world class wine village, thanks to its combination of old world and new world style. What this wine region lacks in size, it makes up for it in the distinct quality of wine that it produces.

Martinborough is one of the three wine sub-regions of Wairarapa, along with Gladstone and Masterton, and is linked from the Ruamahanga River to the Tararua mountains to Palliser Bay. The soil of this area are made up of river gravels and Martinborough is blessed with a warm micro climate which means cool autumns and springs combined with hot summers and cool nights. The unique soil content and favorable climate of Martinborough results in complex and varied wines that this region is known for.
