Rag & Bone Eden Valley Riesling
About the Wine
Brilliant very pale straw colour with a distinct glimmer of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. The nose classically expresses the vineyard… it’s like a fresh lime crushed gently over minerals… literally lime on the rocks. The palate is bright and zingy, singing with natural acidity and vibrant citrus and floral characters. Lovely delicacy and purity of fruit lifted and a crisp, bracing finish, an outstanding example of cool climate Riesling.
The fruit for Rag & Bone is sourced from a single vineyard, high up on the Eastern side of Eden Valley. Warm days and cool nights ensure that the grapes develop ripe, intense fruit flavours whilst retaining appealing zing and acidity. The fruit was delivered to the winery immediately after harvesting in the cool hours of the morning, then processed very gently through our tank press. The juice was cold settled and 3 days later the clear juice was transferred into fermentation tanks.
Well suited to seafood dishes, spicy cuisine and anytime in the company of those who enjoy a quality Riesling! Try chilli prawns, green Thai curry, fish and chicken laksa (with chilli, coconut, ginger and lime).
