Mr. Riggs Wine Co. 'Ein Riese' Riesling | Adelaide Hills

  • Details

    Made as an off-dry German style Riesling, the grapes were handpicked and whole bunch pressed. The grapes were harvested early to ensure that the resultant juice was low in phenolics. The juice was cold-settled though left a little cloudy – this left some solids for the fermentation process to enhance complexity and texture. Fermentation was continued until a perfect balance between alcohol, acid, sugar and flavour was reached, at which point the wine was chilled to halt fermentation. After clarifying, the wine was bottled and released. It almost makes itself! A delicate nose with floral notes and citrus blossom, and a palate much like biting into a fresh Jonathan apple has made for an entrancing combination of sweetness and tang with a wonderful crispness and balance. This has become one of Mr. Riggs’ most sought after wines.
