2022 Colour Series Riesling Dry
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 2022 created its delicate, dry but refreshing flavour profile.

Hand-picked in the cool of the morning in early April, the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed.
Free run and pressings juice were kept separate. The free run juice was fermented in stainless steel using an aromatic yeast. The fermentation took place over 21 days to retain freshness and varietal characteristics. The pressings were separated, fermented in stainless steel and then transferred to seasoned oak puncheons for texture. The pressings and free run juice were aged separately but blended back together approximately 8 weeks prior to bottling.

The 2022 Colour Series Riesling Dry displays a great depth of flavor and aroma, allowing it to compliment and match any fresh and light style of dishes using citrus, fresh seafood, or fresh herbs, but also stand up to something richer, think of charred or baked vegetables, tomatoes, and smoked seafood.
