Characterised by its racy acidity and intense citrus notes, this Tamar Ridge Riesling truly makes an age-worthy Riesling.

Capturing the crisp delicate flavours of its cool-climate origins of the West Tamar region in Tasmania, it nicely complements fresh tiger prawns with honey chilli dipping sauce.

Description

Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12.5%
Colour: The 2017 Riesling is a pale straw with green hues.
Aroma: On the nose, it is refreshingly aromatic with strong elements of lime juice and citrus and subtle elements of sweet perfume.
Palate: The palate is concentrated with flavours of zesty lemon and fresh kaffir lime over a backbone of racy acidity that gives an insight into the staying power of this wine.
Peak Drinking: Until 2027

Recommended food pairings: Serve with seafood such as prawns, scallops or delicate white fish and Asian inspired dishes filled with lots of fragrant lemongrass and coriander.

Growing Conditions: Estate-grown Riesling fruit from our vineyards in the Tamar Valley of Tasmania. The 2017 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals.

Winemaker: Tom Wallace

Winemaking notes: The fruit was predominately hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed with juice then immediately run-off skins. The clear, racked juice was inoculated with a selected aromatic yeast strain. Ferment was cool, slow and controlled to maximise retention of fruit flavours. It was bottled with an alcohol of 12.5% a TA of 7.6 and a pH of 3.17.
