Tasting Notes

One of Delatite’s principal varietals, the Estate Riesling is crafted in the quintessential Australian style. 20% of the vintage is placed in old French oak puncheons to integrate added texture – giving the wine added depth. On the pallet is the characteristic citrus notes, fresh acidity and floral notes toward the end. A structure which is tight, focussed and expressive.

“The combination of wild yeast and part fermentation in used hogsheads are contributors to a riesling with considerable presence and appeal; the flavour cornerstones are lime and Meyer lemon, the mouthfeel relatively (but pleasantly) soft. Nice wine. ”
