2017 40G Riesling

West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description: All this Riesling was harvested in the 1st week of March with most of the grapes coming from our Mount Barker vineyards. Though it was cooler season with some rainy periods this was not an issue as we like to pick the Riesling relatively early, ensuring we retain all its delicate fruit characters. The juice was fermented at cool temperatures and its progress closely monitored so we could stop the ferment with a residual natural sweetness of ~40g/L while still ensuring a good acidity to balance.
Fruit Source:Mount Barker
Colour:Very bright & clear with the barest hint of colour.
Aroma:A delicate, perfumed and spicy nose with hints of musk sticks and lemony sherbet characters.
Palate:Beautifully weighted with a moderate sweetness, this is a delicate Riesling with flavours of sweet lemon fruits and fresh grapes. It has a gentle acidity giving good length of flavour. Absolutely delicious, serve lightly chilled with, or without, food.
