Stoney Range Riesling 2015

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.
