2017 Mewstone Riesling

$50.00

What better way to start May than picking Riesling. Whole bunch pressed to old oak and naturally fermented. As the cellar cooled in late autumn so too did the ferment. Our second Riesling fermented for almost two months, 57 days, before we called a halt as the sugars and acidity found the balance we were after. Matured on lees through to late spring before filtering and bottling. Only 1116 bottles produced.

Tasting Notes

White blossoms and ripe citrus make for a seductive nose, the cool season is reflected in the great acidity on display. A medium dry style, the sweetness balances the racey acidity and refreshing bitter twist. A rich mouth filling style perfectly suited as an aperitif.

    The best riesling I have tried this year. Texture and weight for days, building to a brilliantly opulent palate of white flowers, bitter citrus and fresh stone fruit. So well balanced I couldn’t believe the RS when told. A seriously good job. $50 a bottle seems like a bit of a steal when you look at its contemporaries from Austria and Germany.
