Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirThe Chapman family is ultra-fastidious in its organic vineyard to ensure the fruit has intense concentration of flavour. The warm days and cool nights provide ripe, rich fruit while also retaining fresh acidity.
WinemakingCool fermentation of optimally ripened grapes fills this wine with beautiful aromas of citrus while the palate is refreshing and crisp. The aim is to make a pure style of Riesling with no botrytis influence - picked in the cool to maintain freshness, before pressing to tank and chilling for 2-3 days. Clear juice was then racked off and warmed to allow fermentation to begin.
TastingOn the nose this wine shows Gala apple, lemon zest and lime characters with nuances of floral and spice. The palate delivers excellent concentration and focus together with a beautifully flowing mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by whispering sweetness and crisp acidity.
Makers MatchTerrific drinking, lightly chilled as an aperitif or with lighter dishes.
