What an example of King Valley Riesling – this wine is clean, crisp and refreshing. The colour is straw with a green hue, slightly deeper than previous years. The aromatics are intoxicating and vibrant with notes of lemon sherbet, lime zest and hints of granny smith apple. The palate is zippy and lingering; lemons, limes and traditional lemonade combine with bright, crunchy acidity and great length. Perfect with lightly crumbed salt and chilli calamari.
The Riesling comes from one of our young hillside vineyard blocks. The grapes were machine harvested at night, then crushed, de-stemmed and pressed lightly, providing delicacy and elegance to the wine. The juice was fermented using selected yeast to enhance citrus notes and palate structure. It was then cool fermented to retain freshness and varietal character.
