Australian Riesling has come into its own on the frosty, windswept altitudes of Barossa Ranges and warmer, more temperate environs further down the Barossa valley floor. Fruit is harvested from the pick of Barossa vineyards throughout the chill of early morning, bunches are crushed and chilled for settling, only the finest free runs are retained. Anaerobic handling at every stage of the process is essential. Juices are clarified and vinified at low temperatures in controlled fermenters to retain crisp, varietal characters. Batches are racked off gross lees to preserve the restrained lemon fruit profile and taught mineral structure of Barossa Ranges Riesling.
Pale straw green hues. Ripe lime fragrances and dainty florals, enhanced by jasmine spice, chalkiness and talc notes. Bright and zesty lemon citrus fruit flavours, floral freshness on the mid palate, vitality and length, supported by a balanced acid structure and crisp mineral textures, before a very fine, persistent finish. Serve chilled alongside oysters and sashimi.
