A medium sweet Riesling with a pale straw colour hinting slightly green hues. Lifted floral bouquet of limes and granny smith apple mingle deliciously with a little talc and confectionary hints. The palate is juicy, refreshing and lively on the palate with a lovely, fine frizzante to help deliver fresh lime and apple to the taste buds.
Medium sweet, natural grape sugars are well balanced with zingy, crisp acidity which the Riesling grape is famous for and the finish is long, zesty and fruitful. A perfect accompaniment to spicy Asian infused dishes or a simple pre-dinner aperitif.
From the Winery
Good winter rains and warmer temperatures in early spring brought about slightly earlier bud burst and excellent shoot growth. A lovely growing season with no crazy, stormy or very windy northerly weather to affect flowering resulted in a great fruit set across all varieties. However, the northern Barossa, and a few other seemingly random patches of vineyard, were hit by late frosts resulting in a huge loss for that sub-region. After a quite chilly Christmas and New Year the warm and dry weather was upon us, perfect ripening weather. In early and fast vintage for the Barossa Valley had Langmeil at full fermentation capacity for three and a half weeks meaning 75% of our grape intake in less than a month, phew! Overall 2015 was an excellent vintage with great flavour, colour and intensity across the board.
