Riesling

History

The Mount Barker fruit is all from our best Riesling vines, Block 6 at our Langton vineyard. The fruit was harvested over a 10 day period in early March, with an average of 11.5 Be. Harvested in the cool overnight temperatures, the fruit was processed immediately, with only the free run juice used. Fermented entirely in stainless tanks with neutral yeast at temperatures between 12-15°C.

Color

Very clear and bright with a hint of light straw.

Bouquet

Delicately perfumed with light floral notes. Attractive 'lemonade' aromas.

Palate

Has gorgeous citrus fruit flavours and a lovely fullness without being sweet. The beautiful ripe lemon and lime flavours are compelxed by the delicate floral characters, all balanced by its great natural acidity. With good mouthfeel and palate weight and a long, clean finish, this is a great example of a delicate, dry, cool climate Riesling.

Food suggestions
