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.

Citrus characteristics on the clean full palate contribute to a crisp flinty finish.
A perfect late Spring and early Summer resulted in the best flowering and fruit set we have seen for many years. It was followed by a dry and mild ripening period. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptionally balanced wines.
The small crop of 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 June to retain the freshness and aromatics of the fruit.
