RieslingAromatics include citrus blossom, white petal flowers, sweet floral notes and dried herbs. The palate is crisp, fresh and taut with lemon and lime flavours. It has tight acidity and lovely fruit balance with a lingering, limey finish.
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.

The colour is light straw with soft green hues. The nose shows intense citrus blossom with subtle lemongrass and floral notes. The palate is typical of our Riesling style, bountiful lemons and limes; it has subtle fruit sweetness through the middle palate and finishes with traditional lemonade, grapefruit and sherbet characters. Crisp and clean and an excellent example of King Valley Riesling.
