Klein Constania

Riesling 2010

Riesling 2010

Due to the favourable vintage conditions ripeness was achieved at lower sugar levels than usual resulting in lighter styled, vibrant wines. In particular the Riesling has a very low alcohol of 10.65%.

After destemming and crushing, the grapes were pressed, settled and fermented in stainless steel tank. Typical Klein Constantia Riesling nose of citrus blossom and light confected notes. Whilst the palate is tight, the acid is finely balanced, leading to a finish marked by a slate-like, dry mineral quality. Maturation on lees lasted for approximately 4 months whereafter the wine was stabilized and bottled.
