Integrated aromas of peach, candied lime, orange marmalade and pink grapefruit; complemented by floral and spice notes. Fresh on the palate, this Riesling is made in an off-dry style with lively acidity to balance, with a long flavourful finish.
Selected from multiple vineyards, each parcel was harvested separately, based on the flavours that had developed and the natural acidity in the grapes. Each lot of grapes were gently pressed with no skin contact, and cold settled– resulting in clear juice with very few solids. The juice was then fermented at cold temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was stopped when the desired sugar/acid/alcohol balance was achieved, making the final wine off-dry in style. Kept on light lees until final filtration and bottling.

"Piquant spice, citrus and flinty/mineral notes on the nose introduce a delightful stream of sweet- and tang-laden flavour with lime cordial and lemon chiffon pie to the fore. This is light-medium bodied with satin-smooth mouth feel and a finish that lingers longer than in-laws, only this is really enjoyable. Many readers will love sipping this on its own or poured with spicy Asian cuisine like pad Thai, tandoori chicken or chicken Masala. This is very good value." **** (Vic Harradine)
