Fairview Darling Riesling 2021

(2 customer reviews)

R85.00

An aromatic bouquet of fresh green apples, citrus blossom and lemon curd. A sweet entry on the palate, with refreshing acidity and underpinned with flavours of zesty, sweet lime.  Riesling ages well but can also be enjoyed in the next couple of years.

Description

IN THE VINEYARD

Harvested from vineyards just outside Darling on the cool-climate West Coast. These unirrigated vineyards were planted in 2003 on dark, red Oakleaf soils, approximately 3oom above sea level.

 

HARVEST DATE:

5 March 2021

 

WINEMAKING

Picked in the early morning at 22,7 balling, the grapes were whole bunch pressed, after which the juice was allowed to settle for 48 hours before being racked off into stainless steel tanks and cold fermented. The fermentation was stopped early, giving the wine a natural sweetness.
