The 2017 Y Series Riesling is green straw in colour with opening aromas of orange blossom and rose wine petals, followed by hints of lime zest and pear flesh. The palate is moreish with flavours of pithy grapefruit, early season pineapple and granny smith apples. The finish on the wine is fleshy and zesty with a mouth-watering chalkiness.
Enjoy with chicken dumplings or spicy guacamole and corn chips.
The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night to help retain the lovely aromatics that Riesling is famous for. They were then crushed to a skin contact vessel for 45 minutes to increase flavour. The free run juice is then drained from the skins, with some light pressings to a tank for wild fermentation. After minimal winemaking intervention, the wine is stabilized and filtered, ready for bottling.
