Riesling 2017

Delicate lemon & lime fruit with fine acid

$20.00 CELLAR CLUB
$18.00

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Brilliant, green hue. A restrained nose with classic varietal characters of lime zest, citrus and field blossom with underlying wet slate that will evolve with time in bottle.

Wine Making

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

Vintage 2017 has produced an elegant wine, with varietal character and crisp acidity which will develop nicely over the coming five years. Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, or salt and pepper calamari.

Technical

The Grapes: Riesling from our Silverburn vineyard adjacent to the winery.
Date Tasted: July 2017

Palate:

This wine builds flavour in the mouth, with fresh lime, grapefruit and crunchy green apple. Firm acidity provides backbone to the wine and adds a slate like texture which finishes with a balanced and soft citrus persistence.
