Stoney Range Riesling
The 2016 Riesling is intensely aromatic with elegant lemon, lime and red apple fruit flavours. The nose displays hints of spice and floral. A vibrant palate leads onto a long, balanced finish with a subtle sweetness.
This wine is perfect with seafood dishes over the next four years.
The fruit was machine harvested in the cool of the morning at the end of April, 2016. Following a light pressing of the fruit, the juice was fermented under cool conditions for 21 days. After three months extended lees contact the wine was lightly fined, filtered and bottled.
The Stoney Range 2016 Riesling is sourced from our Stirling and Georges Road vineyards in Waipara, North Canterbury.
