2019 Porongurup Riesling - TROPHY for best Australian Riesling
|Vintage Description: |
In winemaking terms, our Single Vineyard Riesling is handled very carefully and very simply. Only the free run juice is used and the fermentation is closely monitored through to complete dryness. The resulting wine is crisp, fine and delicate; classically Porongurup.
|Winemaking Information:||It was generally a cooler season in ’19 with very few hot days, especially in the Porongurups. As a result, the fruit had a higher natural acidity than previous years and this has been balanced with just a touch of residual sweetness (ie ~5g/L). The wine is still very dry however, with just a bit more palate weight richness.|
|Colour:||Super clear and bright with next to no colour.|
|Aroma:||Delicate aromatics of citrus blossom and delicious, fresh sweet lime.|
|Palate:||Typical of cool climate Riesling, this wine has a fine and delicate structure while still being well flavoured. It has loads of those sweet lime fruit flavours, a beautifully delicate acidity and a super long finish. Superb now as an aperitif or match with any lightly flavoured fish or white meat dish. Will reward cellaring for some bottle age complexity.|
