Riesling 2011

Fresh lime juice and a soft lingering finish

$28.00 CELLAR CLUB
$25.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale white gold. A light, lifted nose of fresh citrus and lime peel. Careful cellaring has permitted the typical hints of aged Riesling to start showing through.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested in late February from aged vines and then fermented in stainless steel under strict temperature control. No oak maturation.

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 2021. Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, or flash fried salt and pepper calamari.

The Grapes: Riesling from our Rutherglen vineyards.
Date Tasted: June 2019

Palate:

An immediately appealing wine with a soft, smooth palate of light lime fruit and sherbert. A fine texture builds through the mid palate adding an extra dimension of complexity, before a crisp, refreshing finish.
