2019 Late Harvest Riesling
Appearance, Pale gold with a green tinge.
Bouquet, Fresh aromatic nose reminiscent of ripe citrus, lifted florals and spice.
Palate, The palate is bright, succulent and sweet, balanced by bracing acidity to give it a sherbet-like zesty finish.
Fermentation, Late harvested Riesling was pressed into stainless steel tank for fermentation at 12 degrees C for 5 days, then chilled down to stop the process and retain sweetness. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled early to retain fresh fruit driven characters, residual sugar and balancing acidity. Bottled August 2019
Conclusion, Enjoy over the next 2 to 6 years with desserts and cheeses.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
2021 Halliday Wine Companion, 95 points - A stellar wine, packing extract and an uncanny intensity of flavour into an ethereal, feather-weight package. Sublime! Nashi pear, talc and Granny Smith apple, with merely a semblance of sweetness sublimated by a whiplash of acidity. And yet 135g/l of sugar. Very fine. (Ned Goodwin)
