2018 Four Winds Vineyard Riesling

2018 Four Winds Vineyard Riesling

Canberra District, NSW

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
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!
Winemaker Comments
The fifth 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. A dry winter in 2017 was followed by a quite warm September. The vineyards received some much-needed rain in November 70mm, a further 95mm early December and then a follow up of 86mm at end of February. The warm weather in between meant perfect ripening and we picked the Riesling on 10th March.
Food Pairing
A perfect match with Asian or any seafood.
Drink
