Tresillian Cerelia 2010
At harvest we noticed that the bunches were much smaller (50%) and lighter than usual. As all of the flavour in wine comes from the skins of the berries, if you have small berries and not much juice, you find more intense flavours in the grapes and thus wines. The grapes were hand-harvested into small bins , transported to the winery and pressed immediately. The intense clear juice was then fermented in typical Canterbury fashion, slowly at low temperatures.
Food Pairings for Tresillian Cerelia
A stunning medium-sweet. Spätlese style Riesling. Aromas of red apple, citrus and honey with crisp acidity balancing the natural sweetness make this a perfect aperitif. Try after dinner with creamy blue cheese and crackers.
