Juliet Riesling 2021

$22.00

Aromas of Tahitian lime, honeysuckle and nougat are mixed with slightly spicy and savoury cashew nut notes. The palate is delicate and pure with a beautiful pithy texture, orange blossom and ripe citrus flavours. This super textural riesling has great palate weight and lovely fruit sweetness which adds great mouthfeel without being cloying.

Description

Winemakers
Notes

A prolonged Indian summer with cool nights, typical of Marlborough, led to expressive wines with great natural acidity. The season produced pristine fruit with beautifully ripe flavours. Sourced from our Brookby Hill Vineyard, the fruit was hand harvested and gently pressed. The cool fermentation was stopped when the sweetness and acidity were in perfect balance. The wine then rested on yeast lees for three months to gain texture and palate weight. The acidity, texture and minerality of this wine interplay harmoniously.
