Description

2015 Hells Gate Riesling

Winemaker’s Comments

The lighter soils in the vineyard add fresh aromatics and mineral tones. The wine shows ripe lime & citrus flavours contrasted with fresh granny smith apple with the hints of mineral characters. The wine has medium residual sweetness well balanced by the crisp acidity to finish clean and fresh. This wine is perfect drinking now while young but will reward cellaring up to 10 years.
