Riesling Coonawarra South Australia
Wynns have earned a soild reputation for delivering Coonawarra's most refined and elegant Riesling. From a region that's renowned for the peerless quality of its world class varietal reds, Wynns have demonstrated that Coonawarra can also make compelling white wines of the highest order. Sitting confidently at the riper end of the fruit spectrum, exuding exquisite citrus florals and an attractive honeysuckle lift, in a style which contrasts favourably to the classically mineral structured Rieslings from higher elevation, cooler climes.
Like many of the world's great winegrowing regions, Coonawarra's climate is cool and marginal. This rejuvenating climes ensure a long ripening period that slowly builds up the intensity of flavours in the grape. The Riesling fruit here makes a wine exhibiting richness, intensity and depth of flavour with an excellent capacity for longevity. Wynns Coonawarra Estate constructs a Riesling that captures as much varietal character as possible in a fresh, light bodied, easy drinking wine. The fruit is harvested and inoculated with choice yeasts. Upon completion of ferments, batches are treated to a term of cold settling before assemblage into the final wine, bottled immediately whilst vital and fresh.
Pale green hues with hints of light straw. Crisp lemon aromas, the nose leads into white flowers and rich honeysuckle, fresh green apples are complimented by lifted floral notes. Gentle white floral and citrus notes balance out over the palate making a soft, approachable wine. Sherbet acid livens up the palate to give a refreshing finish. Just the right weight and clarity of fruit in this perennial favourite.
