Riesling 2008

Riesling 2008

Despite the wet conditions and subsequent lower yields, the Riesling vines provided excellent quality fruit with super acidity and fresh aromatics.

Tasting Notes

Light yellow in appearance with a greenish tinge. The nose exudes mandarin, pineapple and citrus blossom aromas. The intense palate balances the fine, mineral element of the wine’s structure. 

Maturation

A wonderful persistence of flavour on the finish bodes well for further maturation in bottle. 10-15 years
