An early bud burst brought on by a dry winter and spring led into a good, dry growing season. Yields were excellent and the fruit matured nicely, coming in as one of the last parcels of the vintage.
Fruit was hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Juice was allowed to naturally clarify then fermented at moderate (14-16°C) temperatures till dryness. The wine remained in contact with lees for eight weeks before being racked and allowed to mature in tank before bottling.
Youthful straw green, clear star-bright edge.
Lime, orange peel, white florals and hint of candied musk.
Beautiful supple front palate of lime and green apple leading into a fresh line of refreshing Riesling acidity. The palate is framed by some chalkiness and phenolic grip adding interest. A
long finish and the lingering pithy citrus leads you back for more. Our 9th vintage of Riesling from this outstanding vineyard is totally delicious as a young wine, but has the intensity and structure to age gracefully through the medium term.
3-4 years in a cool place.
Kingfi sh ceviche, shaved fennel salad, or by itself
