LARRY CHERUBINO THE YARD Riversdale Vineyard Riesling 2013$0.00
Bouquet of pristine lime, apple blossom and honeysuckle aromatics. White pepper and wet stone provides a soft, chalky minerality.
THE VINTAGE: 2013 Winter rainfall was marginally below average and a lower yield was seen. A warm January with mild and dry conditions saw fruit ripening through to the end of March, resulting in smaller volumes of very high quality white wine grapes in the region.
THE WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested and whole bunch pressed. Only the free-run portion of the juice was used for this wine. Only natural yeasts were utilised and the wine was bottled immediately after cool fermentation to ensure the vibrancy and freshness of the fruit bottled.
THE WINE: A light, straw-green wine with a purity to the bouquet. Layers of lime leaf and crystallised citrus notes. A present thread of lime and mineral, carry through to the finish.
DRINK WITH: Gravlax.
