Riesling 2018

Riesling 2018

Clean, refreshing, and bursting with citrus fruit flavour.

A lively, aromatic minerality comes crisp and strong on the nose, intermingled with fresh green apple. On the palate, brief honey sweetness is swiftly cleansed by continued green apple and lime zest. A clean, refreshing finish leaves the mouth watering for more.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Clean, light white gold and visually very bright. Nose features citrus and wax notes, developing aged characters with some honey notes in the background. Complex with characteristic green apple qualities but developing some nice dynamics. Palate is juicy and fresh and mirrors the Granny Smith apple notes with a phenolic quality that gives the wine palate structure. Beeswax, lime pith and sweetness is balanced to the acidity and alcohol.
Production Notes
Vintage conditions were very challenging due to vineyard flooding, high mildew pressure. Picked and sorted carefully between September 25th and October 1st. Yield was 5.10 t/acre. Pressed whole bunch to tank, then racked for cool fermentation (around 14-16 C). No press fractioning. Fermentation aiming at 16-18 g/L R.S. Racked off solids early to preserve freshness and kept in stainless tanks for aging.
Food Pairing Notes
A great starting wine for a dinner party--match with charcuterie, Alsatian onion tart, goat cheese with honey and fresh fruit.
