With a name that hints at its citrussy freshness, Limelight Riesling comes direct from Central Otago standouts Misha’s Vineyard, available exclusively through Langton’s.
Complexity is at the core of Limelight—this is not your stock-standard Riesling. With unexpected notes of smoky pine and a whisper of spice, its backbone remains classic Central Otago Riesling.
Central Otago, located at the southern end of the South Island of New Zealand, is the world’s most southerly wine region. In a short amount of time, the area has established itself as a world-class region for Pinot Noir. The picturesque region is surrounded by mountains ensuring a cool semi-continental climate that experiences a large diurnal range contributing to the creation of intensely concentrated wines with perfume, and complexity. Central Otago’s vineyard area is divided into six distinct sub regions each with their own climate and wine style. Best known for producing intensely Fruity medium to full bodied Pinot Noir, Central Otago’s cool climate also produces outstanding Riesling as well as superb bottle-fermented Sparkling wines.
