Description

"Deliciously vibrant Riesling with citrus, lime, oyster shell, white flower and grapefruit blossom flavours. A modicum of sweetness reacts with taut acidity to give the wine an exquisite tension. Very impressive" Bob Campbel, Master of Wine, Real Review, Apr 2019

"The wine is pristine, lively and stylish; the elegantly expressed bouquet shows lemon peel, crunchy apple, lime zest and floral characters, leading to a focused palate that is finely textured and persistent. The wine offers subtle sweetness which is brilliantly countered by bright acidity, finishing fabulously long and delightful. Style: Off-dry. At its best: 2019 to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2018

Pale straw with clear hues. Fragrant aromas of pineapple, orange blossom and lime with a touch of melon and spice.  Off dry with a medley of lemon, lime, pink grapefruit with hints of apricot and spice. Lovely acid balance with layers of complexity a nice steely minerality and phenol drive.

The fruit was hand harvested on 22nd April 2017 at 19.4 brix. The fruit was whole bunch pressed to tank and the juice was inoculated with selected wine yeast to undergo fermentation. The fermentation was stopped retaining around 22.4g/L residual sugar.

Food match: Poultry, seafood and Asian dishes.
