Beautiful with prawns, ocean fish and, of course, oysters!
Bright lemon with a green tinge.
Delicate aromas of citrus blossom and a subtle floral note.
The palate displays elegant flavours of lemon zest, floral complexity and a fresh, natural acidity which provides a crisp minerality on a long, clean finish.
The Riesling was whole bunch picked at optimum ripeness in the cool of the morning to help retain the fragile and vibrant primary fruit flavours. It was transported to the winery, crushed and gently pressed to tank for settling. 48 hours later, the juice was cleanly racked and inoculated with PDM yeast (a neutral fermenter that allows for the expression of the primary fruit spectrum). The ferment was kept cool, around 13-14oC, helping to retain the fresh primary fruit aromas while developing a complex fermentation bouquet and increased palate weight and texture.
