Light straw with vibrant green tinges.
Very fragrant, minerally, exotic Riesling aromas.
Palate shows texture with lifted florals. Good balance of acidity, extract and mouthfeel.
The 2010 - 2011 growing season saw our earliest bud burst for sometime. Good rainfall during the growing season gave ideal conditions for the development of quite exotic Riesling flavours. Fruit was hand picked on a "bloody cold" morning.
Fruit is destemmed and gently pressed with all juice being included. Cold settling for 24 hours and then racking and inoculating with a selected strain of yeast. Here it was allowed to complete fermentation until the balance of acidity, mouthfeel and extract was just right. The wine was then sulphured to stop the fermentation, stabilised and bottled.
Alc/Vol: 11.5% v/v pH: 3.10 TA: 8.3g/L
This wine is made for immediate enjoyment, however will continue to develop if stored correctly.
Lovely aperitif or with poached South Australia whiting.
Dry Medium Bodied
