True to traditional style Rieslings, the fruit was hand harvested and sorted followed by gentle pressing for maximum extraction. The free run juice then went through a cool, two week fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The grapes were handpicked off our Lake Country property.

TASTING NOTES

100% Estate grown, this is a Riesling that will delight now, but will also age nicely. Aromas of honey dew melon and sweet citrus are sprinkled with tarragon and lemongrass.  The palate reveals flavours of golden delicious apple and lime with fresh, clean and balanced acidity.
