Tasting Notes

This delicious and complex Riesling showcases just how well our Rieslings can age. Winner of an Elite Gold at the 2017 Canberra International Riesling Challenge.

Colour

Showing a youthful colour of pale straw with green tinges.

Nose

Beginning to show hints of toast & honey on the nose but still with a clean crispness.

Palate

Subtle Honey, toast & richer characters on the palate now, still with underlying flavours of lime/citrus flavours evident and with a delightful freshness of acid through the middle palate and finish.

Food Pairings

Whiting, oysters and fresh crabs.

Specifications

Vintage Conditions

Harvesting was in Mid April when the grapes had reached a ripeness of 11.7 beaume. Clear settled juice was fermented at a cool even rate to ensure retention of all these flavours and the wine stabilised, clarified and bottled early to maximise its quality.
