Eyes

Vibrant pale green.

Nose

Classic Riesling aromas of lime, florals, musk and mandarin peel.

Mouth

The initial flavours veer towards tropical fruit salad before the citrus and musk mid palate, then the Riesling hallmark, a strong minerally natural acid note, which persists throughout this wine until the balanced creamy finish. Overall a vibrant young fruity white with a real point of difference.

Winemaking Notes

In a first for Blue Pyrenees Estate we have worked with local vineyard Glenmona to produce a Pyrenees Riesling for both companies. What a great season to choose — with plentiful spring rains to create both good canopy and crop, followed by a mild to warm summer and Autumn to finish ripening the grapes. The grapes were picked at an appropriate balance of sugar and natural acid (12 Beaume) requiring no additions or adjustments. The wine was made by cool fermentation of the juice through to dryness and then 4 months battonage on the primary yeast lees to impart some palate texture.
