New Stock! Pale golden-yellow color with intensely flavour and balanced acid. The aroma has slight notes of golden delicious apple and orange blossom. A refreshing palate of peach, ripe citrus and dried apricots is followed by a wonderfully clean finish that will compliment most desserts and especially cheese.
2013 presented us with wonderful conditions to produce a late harvest style. The Riesling dried on the vine and was picked very late in the season. Our steep southern slopes which house our riesling helps minimise the suns radiation; this in turn gives us a long ripening period and helps us maintain good acidity.
