Region: Central Otago, New Zealand
The 2014 Twelfth Night Riesling was made from sustainably grown grapes from the Cromwel Basin of Central Otago and hand harvested at full maturity. The low yields and a long, gentle whole-bunch press yielded a concentration of flavors and texture to the wine. The wine was fermented between 15-20˚C and stopped naturally at 8.5g of residual sugar before being aged on the lees for 5 months.
Residual Sugar 8.5 g/L
Acidity 9.6 g/L
The wine is intense and complex on the nose with aromas of citrus and white flowers with nectarine and grapefruit on the palate and a mineral finish. The bright acidity and off-dry style pairs well with a wide variety of flavors.
Serve with seafood, aromatic Thai curry, seared citrus scallops or roasted pork tenderloin but most of all pair it with good friends and great times.
