This Riesling is bright, fresh and juicy. On the nose, you’ll find
aromas of green apple, citrus, and chalk. On the palate you’re
met with flavours of lemon, lime, white peach, flint, and white
stone. This wine starts off round, refreshing, spritely and
finishes on a balanced and clean note.
This Riesling is sourced from two vineyard sites that we manage, our
Patricia’s block located on our St. David’s estate and our Four Mile
Creek road vineyard. In 2022, we had a decent year, with the heat
units needed to develop ripe flavours. The yield was low, therefore
fruit was concentrated and the cool autumn nights preserved a
beautiful freshness and acidity. This wine was made using grapes
picked on different harvest dates, clone 239, 49, plus a few Paul
Bosc experimental clones, as well as an Alsacean clone. Grapes were
Opti-Machine harvested, destemmed, double berry sorted, gently
pressed and then fermented at various temperatures using various
yeast strains in stainless steel. This wine spent 5 months in stainless
steel where we experimented with lees stirring to build weight.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine would pair well with fresh seafood, dishes that are
light, think grilled branzino, poached halibut or tuna sashimi.
Also, would work well with a beautiful caprese salad, fennel
salad, or light pastas like shrimp scampi or a pasta with lemon
