Made from 100% estate grown Riesling, this is a refreshing, semi-sweet style of wine with good tangy acidity and a clean finish.
It is low in alcohol and perfect to enjoy with spicy foods or equally as a drink by itself. It is an interesting and enjoyable wine that appeals even those who don’t do sweet styles.
Surrounding the winery is 28 hectares of vineyards. Soils are sandy clay loam, which in layman’s terms means we have sandy loam top soil for about 25cm and then it goes into a thick potter’s clay layer for the next 30-40cm. From there it is clay with small amounts of limestone dispersed throughout. Moisture is retained well in these soils, which is ideal for our hot, dry weather.
Hand-picked fruit. Cold pressed, left to settle. Warmed natural yeast added, producing cloudy fermented juice to promote texture and shape. A close eye was kept on fermentation in order to get the sugar levels just right. After fermentation, it was left to cool for the next few months. Lightly filtered.
Colour: Subtle white gold.
Nose: Tropical fruits of young mango, citrus, lychee and golden pineapple with hints of rosewater and sweet spice.
Palate: Sweet, spicy and light with tropical fruit flavours and a refreshing finish.
Serving: Enjoy this wine with spicy foods, Asian dishes, summer fruits or with dessert. Serve chilled as a refreshing aperitif on a hot day or as a palate refresher.
