Mr. Riggs Wine Co. 'Ein Riese' Riesling | Adelaide Hills
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, with an entrancing combination of sweetness, crispiness and tang on the palate. This wine is finely balanced through natural acidity, and is Ben’s tribute to the wine style he most admires.
