CHRISMONT Riesling 2019
As crisp as the climate of its King Valley home, this wine is an exciting expression of one of the world’s classic white grape varieties. Riesling is also a building block on which Chrismont’s reputation stands today, being some of the first vines planted by Arnie and Arnaldo Pizzini in the early 1980’s.
COLOUR: Pale straw to light lemon.
AROMA: Lifted floral aroma with lime background.
PALATE: Zesty citrus flavours with lively acidity. Great length and flavour persistence.
“The fruit is harvested when we start to see a synergy of citrus flavours with acidity. Pressed gently with only the delicate free run juice being used, the juice is settled to clarify before being fermented cool in stainless steel to help preserve fruit flavours. A short maturation period on lees during autumn and winter helps to develop the flavours of the wine before it is prepared for bottling in spring.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Alfresco drinking at its best alongside a delicious and light dish of zucchini flowers.
