2010 Milton Park Riesling
Light straw in colour. The nose is lifted and fragrant with limes and orange blossoms. The palate displays lemon and lime flavours typical of this variety. The finish is dry and crisp with lingering citrus characters. A lovely wine on its own or try pairing it with seafood or Asian Cuisine.
Crushed, de-stemmed and then pressed using a membrane press. Pressings were not used and ferment commenced using French yeast at 12-15 degrees Celsius. The ferment was kept slow and cool to retain all natural varietal flavours and aromatic qualities. The wine was racked, filtered and then bottled soon afterwards so the wine was a true expression of the grape/terrior from which it was made.
The 2010 vintage followed good winter rainfall in 2009 and allowed vineyards to commence the 2010 season with good soil moisture levels. This soil moisture, combined with moderate weather conditions throughout most of the growing season allowed for good fruit set and canopy development. In summary an excellent vintage, with very little extreme weather resulting in fantastic colour and flavour in red varietals, and excellent acid and flavour
profiles for whites.
