2011 RieslingWinemaking Notes:

The fruit for this wine is grown on a sustainably farmed vineyard located on north-easterly facing terraces above Lake Dunstan in the Cromwell Basin in Central Otago. This 2011 Riesling was handpicked and the fruit was then whole-bunch pressed at temperatures of 15-17˚ C to retain freshness and fermented to 12.5% alcohol. In order to add richness and intensity, it was allowed to age on the lees for 2 months. The wine was then racked before bottling.

Tasting Notes:

The wine is intense and complex on the nose with notes of white flowers, honey, peach and wet stones. Medium-dry on the palate, the Riesling has bright acidity with hints of lime and minerally flavors. The subtle sweetness and dry, lingering finish provide excellent structure and length.

Food Pairing:

A versatile food wine that can be served with all fish, seafood, poultry, pork and vegetables.
