CHRISMONT Riesling 2013
Chrismont Riesling is one of the foundations on which this King Valley winemaker’s quality reputation stands and has delighted Australian palates for many years. A consistently awarded wine, produced through pursuit of excellence and attention to detail in the vineyard and winery.
COLOUR: Pale straw to light yellow
AROMA: Citrus and honeysuckle foundation overlayed with mature notes of biscuit, toasted nuts and camomile.
PALATE: Zesty citrus, honeydew, and roasted nuts. Bright acidity with silky texture gives great length and flavour persistence.
"The fruit is harvested with good natural acid levels. The Riesling grapes are pressed gently and most of the juice is handled reductively to preserve delicate fruit flavours. Some batches of juice are handled oxidatively to help reduce tannins and to add another dimension to the final wine. The juice is fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve fruit flavours before being fined, filtered, and bottled." Warren Proft, winemaker
