The 2016 Riesling is a pale straw with green hues.
On the nose it is refreshingly aromatic with strong elements of lime juice and citrus and subtle elements of sweet perfume.
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.
Estate grown Riesling fruit from our vineyards in the Tamar Valley of Tasmania. The 2016 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals.
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 8.7 and a pH of 2.89.
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.

"This is a label that is going places. The wine offers great value, with this riesling benefiting from a little bottle age. The citrus perfume is backed by delicious lemon sorbet flavours and a refreshing acidity. Perfect with whitebait fritters."
