This is a well-weighted Riesling from a top Mt Barker winery. The fruit was picked a touch riper in 2019 to balance the naturally higher acids of the season. It has those distinctive lime fruit flavours and a delicious, fresh, crisp acidity that contributes to its persistent flavour and great palate length.

Palate

This is a well weighted Riesling; the fruit being picked a touch riper this year to balance the naturally higher acids that occurred this season. Entirely Mt Barker grown -all from Block 6 on our Langton vineyard, it has those distinctive, lime fruit flavours and a delicious, fresh, crisp acidity that contributes to its persistent flavour and great palate length. Crisp and dry it is perfect as an aperitif while having sufficient palate weight to be matched with any fish or Asian spiced meal.

Background

The 2019 vintage was a little trickier to manage than 2018. The generally cooler, drier conditions meant the fruit ripened slowly with still quite high acidity; the picking window for Riesling was small for the winemakers to manage the delicate balance between ripeness versus acidity. With due consideration we carefully harvested the Riesling at night 14th March from our preferred Block at Langton and so it only had to travel a few metres to the crushing deck. The fruit arrived at less than 12 C; only the free run juice was used and it was fermented at 12 - 15 C, ensuring all the inherent delicacy in this variety was retained.
