2015 Bin C207 Riesling
Pale straw with lime green hues.
A very attractive nose dominated by lemon, lime and citrus nuances and some white peach characters.
Intense fresh, crisp and dry; the palate reflects the nose and is brimming with lime, lemon and slate characters which all balance nicely with a lovely natural acidity and mineral characters.
Picked in late February the fruit was machine harvested in the early morning whilst temperatures were cool. After crushing we fermented with the use of a yeast cultures at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks to ensure fruit vibrancy. We selected individual parcels to be bottled immediately to retain the natural fruit and acid balance.
Drinking beautifully now, but will cellar well for 6 or so years for those who like Riesling with a little age to develop more oily characters.
