Normans Bin C207 Riesling 2013
Normans Bin C207 - Riesling 2013
Pale lime green in colour with straw edges. Intense aromas of fresh limes, floral notes and flowers all feature on the alluring nose.
The palate shows formidable lime, grapefruit, and citrus flavours with fantastic fruit based sweetness supported by a natural acid backbone.
Riesling was again the highlight of the 2013 vintage in the Clare Valley from a variety point of view. Whilst vintage kicked off earlier than usual at the start of February. There were some warm then cooler spells which allowed for perfect flavour ripening whilst conditions were quite dry and helped develop the natural fruit acidity. After early morning picking and crushing prior to sunrise we used only the free run juice for our Riesling. Fermentation was over a couple of weeks, after cold stabilising filtering the wine was bottled to retain all those beautiful fruit flavours and natural grape acidity.
Drinking beautifully now
