Pale straw yellow colour.
“Fragrant citrus and floral aromas introduce this wonderful medium dry Riesling. It is well balanced, displaying freshness and delicacy, with succulent flavours of lemon and lime that linger on to a long seductive finish.”
The grapes for this wine were grown on selected rows of our own sustainably certified home vineyard. This year the cropping rate was naturally nice and low. However we still thinned the shoots by hand and removed leaves from around the bunches to give the fruit optimum exposure to the sun. The bunches were later hand thinned so that they were nicely spaced on the vine in order to intensify the Riesling flavours in the remaining fruit.
On the 31st of March nice ripe clean berries were picked by hand. Hand picking allows us to achieve a highly aromatic Riesling.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed to obtain clean, pure aromas and flavours. The juice was handled gently and reductively and underwent a cool fermentation in stainless steel using selected yeast strains.
The wine was stop fermented at 12 gm/l residual sugar and aged on yeast lees for 30 days adding richness and texture to the finished wine.
