Overview

An intense palate with very racy acidity showing all the credentials of an age-worthy Riesling.

100% estate grown Riesling from our vineyards in the Tamar Valley. The 2012 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals. There was some late season rainfall that did not affect the Riesling as it was already safely tucked away in the winery. The fruit was hand picked and whole-bunch pressed with juice then immediately run-off skins. The clear, racked juice was inoculated with a selected aromatic yeast strain. Ferment was cool, slow and controlled to maximise retention of fruit flavours. The wine then spent a number of weeks on primary yeast lees prior to bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

This wine is a bright, pale straw colour with tinges of green.

Aroma

The nose is refreshingly aromatic with strong elements of lime juice and citrus blossom, with a delicate sweet perfume background.

Palate

Lean and tight with flavours of zesty lime juice and fresh kaffir lime over a backbone of crunchy acidity that gives an insight into the staying power that this wine possesses. An intense palate with very racy acidity showing all the credentials of an age worthy Riesling.

Food Matching

This wine is a crunchy, fresh easy drinking Riesling and would be perfect on its own. With food try tempura battered whiting with fresh lime and a garden salad. It is also excellent with garlic and chilli marinated prawns straight off the BBQ.
