WINEMAKER’S NOTES A very low yielding year. I don’t often make dry Riesling, since I prefer the texture and balance of a little sweetness to counter the acidity. The quality of the Riesling was very high this year, so we made it 2 ways. Once the primary fermentation was complete, we moved the Riesling to the Garbellotto cask just to round out the mouthfeel and give it a mid-palate. This also developed many of the floral notes you get in the wine.
SOMMELIER’S NOTES Lime candy and flowers. A bright wine with plenty of flavour. I wouldn’t serve this one too cold, as the complexity will get lost. A serious Riesling, that will develop into something pretty geeky. Cut yellowfin tuna into half inch cubes, and do the same with cucumber and avocado. Make a simple dressing out of lime juice, soy, ginger, sesame and green onions. Serve cold, in front of miniature Tiki statues.
