Not Your Grandma's Riesling, Chaffey Bros Wine Co
Tasting Note: Apples and orange blossom wash the tongue while the nose is seduced by flowers, lemon and lime…heady South Australian Riesling.
Food Matching: A versatile wine to try with chicken padthai or a fish-finger sandwich with lashings of tartare sauce.
Vineyard: Michael Noack's vineyard is just outside of the township ofSprington in the southern Eden Valley. The Riesling vines were planted in 1973 on an ideal east-facing aspect that benefits from the prevailing breeze that helps to keep this vineyard fresh and disease free. The vineyard is planted in low-nutrient well-draining soils largely composed of quartz gravel. Vineyard GPS coordinates: 34°42'06.5"S 139°05'03.4"E
Vinification: Machine harvested for a few hours of intentional skin contact to build phenolic body. Cold fermented in a temperature controlled inox fermenter using a combination ofindiginous and selected yeasts to develop and protect delicate aromas. As a stylistic choice, no fining agents are used throughout the winemaking process and only minimal SO2 is added prior to bottling.
