2023 "OD" Off Dry Riesling - NEW VINTAGE!
~ Frankland River, Great Southern, Western Australia
The serious stuff:
Grapes for this wine were carefully sourced from our vineyard in the Frankland River region of Western Australia. The fruit was picked at night when the natural sugar levels were near 10 Baume’ and the acid was in wonderful balance.
Only the clear free run juice was retained and vinified at cool temperatures to preserve varietal flavours and aromas. The resulting wine was made in an ‘off dry’ style which retains the natural fruit sugars in tandem with a zesty mineral acidity.
This wine is delicious low alcohol drinking. This is our 16th release of this unique style.
But what does it taste like?
It’s a riot of semi-sweet freshness and citrussy zing. Serious at the front, but there’s a party going on out the back. Bright and succulent, with a fruity, citric blossom palate finishing with a gentle but persistent lip smacking acidity. Delicious!
