COLOUR

Brilliant pale straw

NOSE

Vibrant aromas of citrus blossom and lemon zest. Subtle flintiness wraps around a tight austere backbone which adds to the intriguing complexity on the nose.

PALATE

The mouth feel is fleshy with a delicate talky texture highlighting the wines unique structure. The palate zips along with a crisp mineral backbone surrounded by limes and green apple. The balanced acidity is narrow and focused throughout the palate with a lingering minerally finish.

Description

WINEMAKING

Riesling fruit is very fragile and its potential to extract phenolics makes it a challenge to handle. A key aim of the winemaking process is to preserve the very delicate flavours and aromas of this variety. The fruit was handpicked to avoid maceration (phenolics) and whole bunch pressed for the same reason. The juice was then cold settled, racked and left to ferment with a neutral yeast strain at a temperature of 15°C. Once fermentation was complete the wine is fined and bottled.

FOOD PAIRING

Will be complimented by dishes that have a fleshy texture and low acidity with simple clean flavours. Oysters or mussels are a great pairing.
