Riesling 2017 Tasting Note

Wine Making

Vintage 2017 provided near perfect growing conditions with good winter rains followed by Rutherglens renowned Indian summer. These conditions have produced an elegant wine, with varietal character and crisp acidity. The fruit was picked in mid-February, early in the morning to keep the fruit as cold as possible. Only the lightly pressed juice was captured to produce pristine juice high in acidity and without phenolics. The juice was fermented in stainless steel with a neutral yeast and temperature controlled to preserve aromatics.

Cellaring

A delicate wine in its youth, this Riesling has now developed to a fuller, smoother palate and is in its optimum drinking window over the next two years. Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, or flash fried salt and pepper calamari.

Brilliant yellow gold. Classic varietal characters of lime zest and orange blossom with underlying minerality.

Palate:

This wine builds flavour in the mouth, with vibrant lemon and lime fruit balanced with a soft toasty finish from several years bottle age. Riesling 2017 Tasting Note
