Mount Edward Riesling 2013
This Riesling is a blend from two our vineyards at the L’Atitude and Serendipity vineyards, Central Otago. Soils are fine loess over schist gravels on both sites, cropped at an average of 7t/ha. Harvested mid april at an average brix of 22. Winemaking; whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, using wild yeast and minimal temperature control, aged on gross less for 3 months. RS 10g/l
This Riesling is medium weight in an off dry style.
Floral and citrus aromas, lush flavours of lemons, limes, and grapefruit characters, underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity.
We aim to produce Riesling of purity, precision and balance with a long resonance of flavour. The wine is drinking extremely well now but can be cellared with confidence for five to seven years.
Aperitif in style with 12.0 % alc.
