Rose & Thorns Riesling 2020
Bright & light with a green tinge.
Lifted aromatics of white florals, lime leaf and musk.
The palate is elegant and vibrant, full of citrus flavours ,with talc and floral notes. Slightly pithy texture balances the natural racy acidity which, then drives the wine through to a long, crisp finish.
Complements salt & pepper squid.
2020 was a warm vintage. It started off with a warm spring followed by a hot summer. Vine growth was vigorous making canopy management intense and fast but essential to ensure a balanced canopy . Dry conditions challenged water use and storage. Yields were low across the board. The Riesling of 2020 is elegant and powerful due to slightly warmer day time temperatures and the typical cool nights.
