True & Daring People
Celia & Hennie Bosman, Proprietors & Winemaker
True & Daring was founded on the belief that the winery would stay true to one
grape and be daring enough to take on Riesling, and only Riesling,
as the wine they produce.
Convictions of True & Daring
True & Daring has proven that through dedication and specialization,
superior Riesling can come from the southern hemisphere.
True & Daring is cool fermented in stainless steel tanks until the wine is almost dry,
followed by 6 months of lees aging for a richer mouth feel and greater complexity.
Bottle aging in the True & Daring cellar produces classic, complex secondary Riesling aromas and flavors.

Accolades & Media Comments
5 Stars (94 Points) - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Complex aromas of ripe apple, nectarine, lemon zest and potpourri lead to a succulent palate that is intense and vibrant with lovely fruit power, backed by subtle sweetness and racy acidity, leading to a lingering, mouth-watering finish. A serious style offering fruit purity as well as spicy complexity. At its best: now to 2020.
Peter Saunders, New Zealand Wine Critic:
"Fresh and youthful yet already showing as serious in a concentrated style. Near dry and elegant, a wine unfolding into something on top of the world. Try young but be in no hurry for 3-5 years as the balance and structure is her for the long haul, patience will be rewarded".
We Dare You to Try It!
