Wine maker notes
The Riesling is our baby, in the sense that it was the first wine we produced and launched to the public. It is a purely textural adventure, ripe with off-dry flavors of honeysuckle, lime, and wintersweet flower. The citrus notes meld together with crisp, minerality, and a complex ripe apple character. It finishes with a beautiful, lingering acidity. This is achieved by blending together two distinct blocks of Riesling from our vineyard. The Riesling is planted on the higher elevated Southern section of the vineyard bordered by gullies, with the gully to the west being an established pine forest creating a warm sheltered block. The Riesling is closely planted, and has been split into two blocks with the lower block being spur pruned and the higher larger block single cane pruned to reduce vigour and maximise flavour. Like several of our other blocks we tend and harvest this block by hand. These plantings focus on German Geisenheim clone Gm 239, backed by clones Gm 198 and then Gm 110, which provide a classically elegant wine with mandarin, lime and lemon flavors.

Scholar Entrepreneur, and New Zealand native David Teece, and his wife Leigh, believe his homeland “produces some of the best products in the world and aficionados everywhere should have a chance to experience them.” Mt. Beautiful Wines from North Canterbury reflects their passion for New Zealand. By producing elegant, certified-sustainable, estate-grown wines, David and Leigh have found a way to truly encapsulate in the bottle, the climate and the richness of the land. Mt Beautiful is uncompromising in quality and faithful to the terroir. As pioneers of the North Canterbury region, Mt. Beautiful owners David and Leigh were looking to invest in David’s homeland in a way that would allow expression of their passion for farm-to-table food and wine, while energizing the community to which they are so genuinely committed. By creating Mt. Beautiful Wines and adopting certified-sustainable practices, we are able to be dedicated guardians of the land, and good stewards of our heritage.
