2015 Riesling

$28.00

This wine is supple and ripe with intense pear, quince and mandarin flavours. The fruit and spice notes are underlined by a rich and creamy mouth feel with a good acidity providing a mineral backbone and a long lingering aftertaste to this off-dry style wine.

Description

Appearance

Crystal clear, pale lemon.

Palate

Wow! Lime alert! This southern star smashes through the palate with green apple and quartz-powder, mineral-driven mouthfeel that lingers long and will send your saliva glands into overload. The citrus intensity is one thing, but the honeysuckle and hints of biscuit really add to the complexity of this wine in the mouth. It’s a clean, zingy wine which zips into action immediately. This is the sort of wine that’ll be perfection with classic, sweet and sour pork with pineapple chunks. 4.5 Stars – Yvonne Lorkin

The grapes were whole bunch pressed to minimise extraction of skin phenolics and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferment was stopped to maintain a small residual sugar level to balance the acidity.
