2013 Patina Riesling

$35.00

Although this wine is drinking well now with its fresh aromatic characters, you’ll be well rewarded if you put a few bottles away for several years. It will develop some luscious honey notes and complementary flinty minerality over the next few years.

Product Description

Colour: Pale straw.

Aroma
: Elegant, lightly floral, tropical fruit and lemony citrus.

Palate
: Generous ripe fruit up front, lemon curd / lemon pith mid palate and a long clean citrusy finish.

Cellaring
: Although this wine is drinking well now with its fresh aromatic characters, you’ll be well rewarded if you put a few bottles away for several years. It will develop some luscious honey notes and complimentary flinty minerality over the next few years. Expect this wine to continue to improve well beyond 2023.

The fruit was grown within a reasonably shaded canopy. It was picked just under 3 pH, it was whole bunch pressed with minimum skin contact. Fermented in tank it was arrested at 7g/L residual sugar to leave a little bit of fruit sweetness. I find that tight acid balanced with a little residual sugar accentuates the aromatics in Riesling. This wine had very little lees contact post ferment.
