Te Muna Estate
Dry Riesling 2020
Tasting NotesDownload PDF
Colour: Bright green gold
Aroma: Lifted lime blossom, grapefruit, quince and lemon peel notes jump from the glass.
Palate: The Te Muna Valley acid drive comes to the fore, with the untouched phenolic drive to add length and persistence. The 7g/L sugar is almost invisible, adding but a touch of roundness in the mid-palate to the purity of the acid drive.
The grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed to stainless steel under cooling. After 24 hours, the clear juice was racked off any solids and fermented at between 13-16°C for 8 days until balance of the residual sugar and acid was reached. The resulting wine spent three months on light fluffy lees, before bentonite was added to stabilise, and finally a low pressure filtration.
