2017 Four Winds Vineyard Riesling

2017 Four Winds Vineyard Riesling

Canberra District, ACT

Excellent colour with plenty of green tints. Lifted Riesling aromas of lime juice, apple and stone fruit. Some background floral notes. These follow to the palate with crunchy apple and pear flavours supported by lovely acidity. The slight residual sugar is perfectly balanced with acid, hence being classed as ‘dry’ on the International Riesling Foundation scale. A wine of great finesse and flavour.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The fourth release of our Riesling from the Canberra district. This small grape growing area is half way between Canberra and Yass and the home to some very fine wineries such as Clonakilla and Helm. As well as spicy Shiraz, the area has been making a name for itself with racy, slatey Riesling. Murrumbateman enjoyed a wet winter of 2016 with nearly 500mm of rain. A fine dry summer ensured perfect grapes at harvest with the fruit being picked on the 9th of March 2017.
Vinification
The fruit was transported to the Hunter Valley and whole bunch pressed. The free run was then fermented cold in stainless steel while the pressings went to older barrels. These then had a wild fermentation. The final step was to make sure the two parcels worked together as a blend. They did!
Food Pairing
A perfect match with Asian or any seafood.
Drink
Best consumed over the medium term.
