RIESLING 2021

Turkish delight and jasmine invite you to further explore this stunning wine. The classic Riesling nose evokes fond memories of grans’ fresh-out-the-oven cookies with renosterveld honey and orange zest on the finish. Best enjoyed watching the sunset savouring satay chicken kababs.

WINEMAKER COMMENTS

Riesling’s aromatic subtlety, racy acidity and gracious aging potential, makes this a stand-out varietal that truly reflects the Nitida terroir. After experiencing three of the driest winters back to back followed by a cool dry 2020 summer and the vineyards responded with smaller, more concentrated berries. With careful canopy management we managed to keep a natural fresh acidity in the grapes.

We harvested the Riesling on the 26th of March . The juice were left on the skins for 6 hours before a gentle pressing to extract as much of the flavour compounds without losing any of the freshness.

The wine was left on the lees for 4 months before racking it off the lees and a light filtration before bottling.
