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, which linger on to a long seductive finish.”
The grapes for this wine were grown on our own sustainably certified home vineyard. There are two blocks of Riesling, one planted in 1993 and the other in 2003. This year the cropping rates were naturally very 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. Both blocks were picked on 2nd April.
The grapes were pressed lightly 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 kept on fine lees for 30 days.
