Wild River Riesling 2016

This fruit driven Riesling has aromas of lemon and lime with spicey floral note. The palate is rich in both texture and concentration with good balance, acidity and fruit flavour.

Viticultural Practises

The vines are predominantly 198-19 clone with some 110 clone to provide depth of flavour. The rootstock is a mix of 101-14 and 3309, both low vigour rootstocks which limit crop and enhance flavour intensity. Vines were hand thinned to reduce the number of bunches, resulting in a very low crop load.

Wine making details

Fruit was gently pressed to tank for cold settling. The clear juice was then racked to tank and inoculated with selected yeast strains. The ferment was cool for a fruit driven style of wine and was arrested when balance with acid and sugar was achieved. The wine spent 4 months on yeast lees before being racked and processed to bottle.

Food and Wine Matching

Perfect with pan-fried white fish and seafood. The slight sweetness and good acidity will balance oilness in Asian dishes especially those flavoured with limes such as Thai Green Curry.
