Normans Heritage Series Riesling 2016
Normans Heritage Series - Riesling 2016
Vibrant pale straw in colour. The bouquet has lifted aromas of fresh lime juice with hints of orange blossom.
The palate is fresh, bright and lively bursting with limes, green apple, citrus and mineral acidity.
Selected parcels of fruit were sourced from a single vineyard in the iconic Clare Valley region for this limited edition wine. The fruit was hand picked during the cool early hours of the morning. 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.
This well balanced Riesling is best to drink now or will reward medium term cellaring.
