Pale straw with light green hues.
Intense aromas of zesty lemon and lime with hints of lemongrass, citrus blossom and musk.
Crisp, clean and dry, with varietal flavours of fresh lemon and lime and a hint of sherbet enhanced by lovely minerality, a fine chalky texture and great length.
2022 was a cooler year with late top ups of rain allowing the fruit to develop slowly and produce lovely concentrated flavours and good acid retention. The fruit was picked in great condition and some larger bunches and berries led to a vibrant, delicious Riesling.
The grapes were picked from block 13.5 of our Upton Run vineyard early morning on 22 March 2022. Picking, pressing and fermentation all occurred on the same day, with minimal handling to encourage primary fruit characters. The wine was fermented using a select cultured yeast which enhances aromatics and elegant structure, while the stainless steel tanks ensured a clean, fresh Riesling.
