Description

  • Medium-sweet style
  • Lemon curd
  • Apricot
  • White florals

"It is instantly appealing on the nose showing lemon curd, crunchy apple, white floral and nectarine characters with subtle wet limestone note. The palate delivers excellent focus and concentration, wonderfully enhanced by attractive sweetness and perfectly pitched acidity, leading to a delectably long, zesty finish. Style: Medium-sweet. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2018

"Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler edged. The nose is very taut and finely concentrated with aromas of citrus fruit harmoniously entwined with subtle notes of toast and minerals, showing the beginnings of secondary development. The aromatics are refreshing and mouthwatering. Medium-sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate has bright and aromatic flavours of lime fruit along with white florals, entwined with honey, toast and mineral detail. The palate has a sleek core with a fine line running on subtle phenolic textures and slippery acidity that balances the sweetness. The flavours flow positively with underlying drive and energy to a long and sustained finish. This is a medium-sweet Riesling wine finely detailed lime, floral honied and toasty-mineral complexities on a slippery, sleek palate. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the ‘Parkburn’ vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel" Raymond Chan, Jul 2018

This medium-sweet Riesling, inspired by the Spatlese wines of Germany, is produced from the winemakers Parkburn (Cromwell Basin) Vineyard. Apricots and mandarin juice dominate the nose of this wine in its youth, and the palate is filled with lively notes of tangerine and lime. The immaculately balanced rich sweetness and fine acidity are brought to completion by a very long and cleansing finish.

Sourced from Rockburn's Parkburn Vineyard in the Cromwell Basin.

The fruit for this wine was fermented in stainless steel at 15oC to retain aromatics and finesse. Stopped at its point of sugar/acid balance then racked, filtered and bottled.
