Description

This Riesling is medium weight in an off dry style. Floral and citrus aromas, flavours of lemons, limes, and grapefruit characters, underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity.

This Riesling is the first Mount Edward Riesling just from the Morrison vineyard, organic and true to style. Riesling from Morrison is off dry with delicious flavours that have orange/grapefruit peel at its core, this mineral pith like texture is the Morrison vineyard marker. A sorbet like wine, refreshing and perfect for Summer and beyond.

Soils are fine loess over schist gravels on both sites, cropped at an average of 7t/ha. Harvested mid april at an average brix of 22. Winemaking; whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, using wild yeast and minimal temperature control, aged on gross less for 3 months. RS 8g/l.

Mount Edward aim to produce Riesling of purity, precision and balance with a long resonance of flavour. The wine is drinking extremely well now but can be cellared with confidence for five to seven years.
