2017 Sparkling Riesling
Visual: Bright and clear pale yellow colour with nuances of pale green. Persistent medium small bubbles flow in continuous chains, ending in a pearl-like band around the rim. Nose: Complex and vibrant, the nose draws you in with tight aromas of pear and apple, giving way to a second nose full of peach and nectarine, balanced with a fresh, slate-like minerality. Palate: Clean, crisp and exciting. Firm but supple effervescence carries the lush aromas of ripe stone fruit and tight minerality across the midpalate, where the delicate dance between sweetness and fresh acidity entice the palate. The mousse releases towards the finish, filling the mouth and leading to a balanced finish filled with crisp citrus and lush texture, the last burst of the bubbles draws you back for another sip.
