Goes well with Oysters

Riesling is a great match for Oysters. The citrusy acidity in the wine is like squeezing fresh lemon juice on the oyster enhancing their natural briney flavour.
Local suppliers of fresh oysters.

Winemaking notes

We source fruit from our own vineyard at Rowella, and also a vineyard that we lease a bit further south down the valley at Rosevears. Our vineyard tends to give us the more mineral/citrus flavours; whilst the vineyard at Rosevears is more aromatic and floral. This results in a beautiful flinty style of Riesling with lifted floral aromatics and a strong citrus backbone. To achieve this, we harvested the fruit at around 11.5 Baume, pressed to tank, racked and then cool fermented the juice with inoculated yeast. The wine was then lightly fined and filtered and bottled as soon as possible to maintain maximum freshness and aromatics.

Tasting notes

The 2018 Riesling is a fine and delicate wine with lovely aromatics and a minerally/slatey palate. The nose displays aromas of lime leaf and jasmine with some spiced apple characters, whilst the palate shows mineral characteristics with fantastic fruit purity and light, flinty acidity.
