Riesling 2011

Tasting Notes

Pale white gold.  A classical Riesling nose of lemon zest, citrus blossom and grapefruit.
Careful cellaring has permitted the typical hints of aged Riesling to start showing through.
An immediately appealing wine with a long flowing palate of fresh green apple and grapefruit characters. A fine texture builds through the mid palate adding an extra dimension of complexity, before a long crisp finish.

Winemaking

Fruit was harvested in late February from aged vines and then fermented in stainless steel under strict temperature control.

Cellaring

The early picked aromatic duo of Riesling and Gewurz have fared particularly well in what proved an otherwise challenging vintage. Cooler conditions have produced a finer wine, with lower alcohol, and prominent acid structure, which will steer it well well until at least 2020. Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, or flash fried salt and pepper calamari.

"We have been growing Riesling in our vineyards since the 1890’s and in that time have developed our own regional style, with abundant fruit flavours and wonderful balance. Our aged Rieslings are wines of remarkable complexity and flavour, of which we are very proud." - Colin Campbell
