Normans Bin C207 Riesling 2017
Normans Bin C207 - Riesling 2017
Pale straw with green hue. Lifted floral blossom, lemon, lime and mineral notes with some white peach characters. This is a textbook Clare Valley Riesling.
Intense, fresh, crisp and dry; delicate palate of zesty lemon and lime provide a mouth watering opening while crisp natural acidity and grape sugar provides the perfect combination.
Selected parcels of fruit were sourced from vineyards in the Clare Valley region of South Australia. The fruit was machine picked during the cool early hours of the morning which enabled us to select only the best fruit from the vineyards from this wonderful vintage. The fruit was then rapidly transported to the winery and immediately crushed, chilled and pressed, where the free run juice and pressings were separated. The juice is cold settled for 3-4 days, racked off solids and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation individual batches were blended to style then the finished parcels were carefully assessed, with only the finest chosen for the final blend prior to bottling.
Drinking beautifully now, but will cellar well for 3 or so years for those who like Riesling with a little age to develop more oily characters.
