More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|The wine is a blend of free-run juice and pressings (light) which were fermented separately. At the point of bottling it was decided to make this blend as the pressings were showing great Riesling characters that enhanced the complexity of the wine and gave the wine more weight than normally expected from a Riesling.|
This off-dry wine shows lime and spice flavour combined with more ripe and complex citrus flavours from a small influence of botrytis. The wine style, while young, has a clean fresh flavour with a hint of sweetness and a crisp finish. The balance of residual sugar, alcohol and acidity in this vintage outweighs any of the individual components.
