The Partners Riesling 2022

$40.00
COLOUR

Bright lemon with a green hue.

NOSE

Delicate aromas of citrus and florals with a hint of musk.

PALATE

The palate is long, with an abundance of elegant flavours of lemon zest, floral complexity and a fresh, natural acidity which provides a crisp minerality on the finish.

WINEMAKING 

The Riesling was harvested at optimum ripeness in the coolness of the morning to help retain primary fruit flavours. It was transported directly to the winery, crushed and gently pressed to tank and allowed to cold settle. 48 hours later the juice was cleanly racked and inoculated with an aromatic yeast strain that would promote varietal character. The ferment temperature was kept at around 12-14°C, this helps retain the fresh primary fruit aromas while also developing a complex fermentation bouquet and increased palate weight and texture. After the correct amount of maturation, the wine was then blended, fined and bottled. 

FOOD PAIRING 

Sesame chicken salad with ginger lime dressing.
