Elgee Park Riesling

The aromas show typical lemon, floral and exotic fruit. Citrus characteristics on the clean full palate contribute to a crisp flinty finish. Cool fermented in stainless steel preserves the absolute fruit purity. Perfect for early drinking but will develop complex toasty flavours over the medium term.

PALATE

Citrus characteristics on the clean full palate contribute to a crisp flinty finish.

VINTAGE

Despite challenging weather conditions and the possibility of smoke taint, which we were fortunate to avoid. Settled weather throughout March allowed vintage to deliver consistently high quality, low tonnage fruit.

WINEMAKING

The Riesling was de-stemmed, crushed, drained pressed and settled. The free run juice was then cool fermented in stainless steel tank. This slow, cool ferment preserved the absolute fruit purity evident in the grapes, and after blending and filtering, the wine was bottled in late July to retain the freshness and aromatics of the fruit.
