2021 Colour Series Riesling 12 Bottle Case
A dry style, medium bodied Riesling with notes of keylime, Mandarin and lifted florals. The citrus and floral notes are balanced with characteristic varietal acids with the wine spending extra time on lees during winemaking to add extra texture. The cooler vintage in 2021 created its delicate, dry but refreshing flavour profile.

Hand-picked in the cool of the morning in late March, the harvested grapes were gently whole bunch pressed. Free run and pressings juice were kept separate initially but then blended back together after fining and clarification.
An aromatic strain of yeast was selected for its ability to express varietal Riesling characters, with the temperature kept low to help retain extra flavour.
The fermentation took approximately 17 days to reach optimal dryness, and the wine was left unsulphured on lees for a few weeks after this to build texture and body on the palate.

Soft white cheeses like goats and feta, fresh and cooked seafood, sushi and Japanese food as well as mild chicken, seafood and veggie curries. Dry, light - medium bodied Rieslings like our 2021 vintage are a perfect match with cheeses like Goats cheese and Feta. It will also compliment fresh seafood while the citrus flavours act as a cleansing contrast to richer seafoods such as mackerel and smoked fish while the dry but bright style cuts through milder seafood, chicken and vegetable curries.
