Riesling Great Southern Western Australia
A sensational wine which articulates the splendour of Great Southern's auspicious clime. Fruit is sourced from vineyards at Mount Barker, Frankland River and the Porongurups. Mount Barker produces Riesling with a racy lime/ lemon character overlaid by talc and bath salts. Frankland River provides a little more generosity, riper flavours with a perfumed nose. The Porongurups yield tight and elegant Riesling wines with wonderfully floral nose and mineral palate. Match your Madfish with sushi or a grill of the freshest seafood.
A popular choice the world over, made by the eminent team at Howard Park, capturing the freshness and vitality of the wine friendly climes in Australia's southwest. The Porongurup ranges are a small sub region of elevated vineyards that grow particularly fine Riesling. The winters here are bitterly cold and the soils mean, ideal for the production of crisp, clean fruit for MadFish. Harvests are immediately processed to ensure the highest quality juices without phenolics. All batches are kept separate and treated to a cool fermentation, retaining maximum fruit character without cluttering the wine. The final assemblage is fashioned to achieve a fuller and more generous rendering of Great Southern Riesling. Alcohol 12.5%
Bright pale straw, green hues. The nose is wonderfully aromatic, showing lime skin and white citrus flower notes. An upfront burst of floral and citrus juice flavours leading to a tight and crisp middle palate of great focus. The linear and long dry finish is complemented by restrained floral characters and lingering lime pith flavours. Great with freshly shucked Albany oysters.
