This is a variety very well suited to the Great Southern and especially the Porongurups, with its cooler ripening conditions and especially its cooler overnight temperatures. Typically, the Riesling wines made from this region are delicate, crisp and dry and can age well.
All the fruit was harvested overnight when as cold as possible and processed promptly at the winery to avoid any risk of oxidation. Only the free run juice was used and fermented at cool temperatures with a neutral yeast to maximize the delicacy inherent in this variety.
Beautifully perfumed with lifted, quite floral aromas of orange blossom and fresh lime.
A well weighted Riesling, it has distinctive lime & sweet lemon fruit flavours while still having the delicacy that Porongurup Rieslings are renowned for. It’s delicious, fresh acidity contributes to its excellent persistence of flavour and great palate length. Enjoy now as an aperitif or serve with an Asian style fish dish.
Excellent now while young and fresh, a dry Riesling like this will also handle several years in the cellar for some bottle age complexity; it should continue to drink well for ~5 + years.
