Mount Edward Wine Riesling

Mount Edward Riesling 2018

A truely unique vintage for Riesling which allowed the possible best expressions of this variety. The 2018 has orange/grapefruit peel at its core, a mineral pith like texture is the marker that makes this so special. A sorbet like wine, perfect for summer and beyond.

Whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, wild yeasts, no temperature control and aged on gross less for 3 months. RS 8g/l

Floral and citrus aromas, flavours of lemons, limes, and grapefruit characters, underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity.

Aperitif in style with 12.5 % alc, medium weight in an off dry style.
