Riesling 2018

Delicate lemon & lime fruit with fine acid

$20.00 CELLAR CLUB
$18.00

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Brilliant, green hue. Nose is alive with aromas of lemon tart and limey depth, spring florals with hints of orange blossom also very present.

Wine Making

Vintage 2018 flowed quite seamlessly due to the lack of rain. We were able to choose the optimum time to harvest our Riesling and we blended our two blocks post ferment, one adding freshness and aroma and the other more zesty palate weight.

Cellaring

The 2018 vintage gave us grapes of distinctive varietal character and some lovely riper limey characters. Our 2018 Riesling is bone dry, with floral notes that give a suggestion of sweetness. Perfect partner for a carpaccio of king fish or a quick fried dish of calamari. Enjoy in it’s youth or cellar for up to 10 years.

Palate:

Very youthful palate, the floral freshness explodes and zesty limey fruit persists on the palate with some gooseberry notes with hints of lemon meringue pie. The acidity is ever present and leaves the palate clean with just the perfume of such lively fruit.
