Meet Misha’s Vineyard. Exclusive to Langton’s, this Central Otago vineyard makes wines that engross and delight in equal measure. Lyric is the dry Riesling in the range (a counterpoint to the medium-dry Limelight). It’s light, it’s refreshing and it’s satisfyingly mineral.
There is beauty in simplicity. Expressive yet pure, Lyric could well become your go-to Riesling.
Exquisitely fine and fabulously expressed, the wine shows lemon peel, apple and fig characters with a touch of spicy complexity. The palate delivers excellent concentration and focus, brilliantly structured by bright acidity, leading to a superbly long refined finish.

Complex, varietal and focused bouquet of Riesling with aromas of preserved lemon and dried apple, fresh & preserved pear. Very floral with apple blossom and pressed rose. Bursting with flavour and texture on the palate - showing off acidity and citrus flavours, white peach and sweet red apple. Finishing long and dry with with a satin texture. A lovely example with a cellar time option as well as immediate drinkability - you decide. Drink well now and through 2028.

Dry, silken-textured riesling with lime and white flower flavours. A hint of sweetness creates subtle tension with fruity acidity. A delicate and ethereal wine.

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.
