RIESLING

A mild, December and January with cool nights saw ideal conditions
prevail towards the end of the 2016 growing season. The result was a
measured pace of ripening which ensured the balanced development
of sugar and flavours in the fruit along with the retention of natural
grape acid. A particularly strong Riesling year.

Colour:
Colour Pale lemon, green

Bouquet:
Bouquet Aromas of lemon, lime powder-puff sherbet and a slight
mineral hint are supported by some subtle floral notes.

Palate:
Palate A delicate, almost “pretty” mouth feel with those ever
present flavours of lemon, lime citrus showing prominently on the
palate. These are accompanied by supporting flavours of mineral bath
salts and a slight spice presence. The wine finishes clean, long and
balanced.
