Riesling’s finest characteristics are its intense perfume and its piercing crisp acidity which it manages to retain even at high ripeness levels. Our Di’tjie is a beautiful pale golden colour with delicate apricot, rose and jasmine aromas. The palate is crisp and vibrant, its zesty fruit layered with a saline core and ending on a typical dry finish.

This Riesling is from our vineyards in Darling, a perfectly cool climate to ripen this variety. The grapes are handpicked early in the morning and gently pressed. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and unlike
the Fairview Riesling this is fermented to completion (the Fairview Riesling is slightly sweet). Left on the lees in the
smallest tank in the cellar (200litres) for 7 months before bottling. This is a wine which can age up to 5 years in the bottle
