Great Southern Riesling 2008
Plantagenet’s winemaking philosophy in producing premium quality Riesling is based around cool processing temperatures and minimizing exposure to oxygen. These techniques preserve fruit character and avoid premature ageing. The grapes are harvested at night and run off skins almost immediately, leaving the majority of the free run juice clear of solids. The juice is then cold settled and racked prior to fermentation at temperatures of 12-15 degrees celcuis. The resulting wine is extremely fresh and bright in its youth, yet will age gracefully for 10 - 20 years.cold at night with just the free run juice and first pressings kept for our Riesling. The crystal clear juice is racked off lees, inoculated with a neutral yeast strain, fermented cold and gently cleaned up post ferment. The desired outcome is to produce a vibrant fresh wine with clean lines and great length that will age for 10 - 20 years to develop wonderful toasty, honeyed characters that compliment the natural fruit characters."
Food Pairings for Great Southern Riesling
The color is pale straw with green hues. Showing great delicacy and restraint, this wine offers quiet floral notes with background slate and lemon rind nuances. A fine yet supple palate that is tightly constructed with lovely natural acidity cutting a clean line the length of the palate. Long, lingering citrus flavours present now will evolve into toasty lemon butter with up to 12 years in in the bottle. A classic showing the benefits of a great vintage.
