2019 Ekleipsis Meraki Riesling
Ekleipsis is the project of Jess Mavromatis, formed from her love of lo-fi wines.
The grapes used are all managed organically from vineyards in North Canterbury. The wines are made without any unnecessary additives or treatment. This is a clean, clear skin fermented Riesling that has a flavour profile like the peaches and cream lollies you’d get in .50c mixtures as a kid from the dairy down the road.
It has a driven salty character, and catchy phenolics that play nicely with the fresh and fruity palate. In Greek, Meraki closely means to do something with love.
