Grape: 100% Riesling
Serving Temperature: 9-12 Degree
Colin Angas, guided by Peter Lehmann realised the potential for the Eden Valley to be an exceptional region for riesling and planted a vineyard on a gentle slope in the 1960’s. The top section with deeper soil produces plump bunches of fruit that showcase fresh aromatics and citrus zing. The bottom section, tends to produce tightly structured fruit with crisp, vibrant acidity. Both parcels together make an outstanding riesling wine.
Machine harvested and destemmed straight to press. Juice was treated oxidatively prior to ferment in order to fine out some of the phenolics. Cold settled and then cool fermented over about 3 weeks to dryness with some lees inclusion to enhance texture and balance flavour.
Bright yet pale green-yellow in colour, this Riesling shows ripe citrus and lemon-lime with bursts of orange blossom and jasmine on the nose. Pineapple, stone fruit and citrus are upfront on the palate with a lemon-sherbet zing of acidity. It is persistent and mouth-wateringly moreish.
