Description

  • Semi-sweet style
  • Honey
  • Subtle grapefruit
  • Lime & orange pith

The 2013 Liaison Riesling is golden yellow in appearance, a crisp clean nose with aromas of honey, kerosene and lemon skin with underlying notes of grapefruit. On the palate the wine has a well textured mouthfeel with flavours of lime and orange pith and a great acidity which is balanced by the sweetness of the fruit and a residual sugar of 48g/L.

Mountford Estate was established in 1991 by Buffy and Michael Eaton who chose the site for its elevation and active limestone soils. The 2013 Liaison Riesling was some of the first wine to be made from the newly planted Riesling block on the estate. This fruit was blended with some from a reputable contract grower in the Waipara Valley who has supplied Mountford in the past.

At Mountford Estate they create wines of character and quality through a policy of watchful, non-interventionist winemaking. A combination of new and traditional techniques and technology are used. Mountford Estate has transitioned to using native yeasts, low sulphur and like all past vintages these wines continue with a no fining or filtration policy where possible.  They believe that this is the way to gain a true expression of site and vintage.

Delicious, mature and golden in colour. I loved it so much that I quickly ordered a second case!
