2017 Riesling

West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description: Our Regional Range Riesling is sourced from selected parcels of fruit from our Langton vineyard in Mt Barker. Riesling thrives iin this region and produces a delicate, crisp dry wine with the zesty, citrus fruit characters typical of this cool climate variety. Enjoy as a young wine with fresh seafood and Asian cuisine
Winemaking Information:The Riesling fruit was harvested from our Langton vineyard (Mt Barker) in the first few days of March. A close eye was kept on the vineyards leading up to picking as there had been some unseasonably cool and wet days, though picking the Riesling relatively early ensured the fruit was in excellent condition with perfect analysis. Only the free run juice was selected for this Riesling and carefully fermented at cool temperatures with a selected yeast to enhance the aromatics and retain the delicate citrus and floral fruit characters. Bottled as early as possible to retain maximum freshness.
Fruit Source:Mount Barker
Blend:100% Riesling
Colour:Very bright & clear with a hint of a light green tinge.
Aroma:A fragrant nose with subtle orange blossom characters and aromas of sweet lemon rind and hints of spicy lime.
Palate:Our ’17 Riesling is a very fine dry wine with the delicate, fresh fruit flavours typical of cool climate grown fruit while being quite well rounded with a beautiful palate weight. It has delicate flavours of lemon sherbet and sweet limes with very light floral notes. With its fresh ‘zingy’ acidity it has good length of flavour and a crisp, clean finish.
Cellar Potential:Enjoy now and over the next 8 years.
