Delatite Riesling

Delatite Riesling 2017

Central Victoria, Victoria   |    750ml   |    12.5%
Based in Mansfield, at the base of Mount Buller, Delatite has long been regarding as one of Victoria's leading cool-climate winemakers. The 2017 Delatite Riesling is another classic cool-climate Riesling; offering up rich spicy aromas of cinnamon and floral notes from fermenting with wild yeast on solids. The fruit gives a wonderful background to the spice with flavours of citrus and a refreshing mineral tightness. The palate is dry but the fruit and spice balance the acidity beautifully.

"Manages to combine elegance and richness, in no small measure due to the acidity generated by the cool vintage. While the major fruit line is citrus (Meyer lemon), there are riper notes, almost too much so. 90 Points. Price: $27.00 Drink By: 2025 Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

It was established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David. Their winemaking approach has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years.

Owing to its cool climate and sub alpine location in the High Country, Delatite’s wines are European in structure and complexity. They’re great with food and will also age beautifully for 10- 15 years.

This fruit was hand -picked and whole-bunch pressed to tank before being allowed to warm up and begin fermentation naturally. During fermentation 20% of the wine was transferred to old French oak puncheons to and then matured in this oak for 9 months prior to being blended back.

Our 2016 Riesling has a tight nose of lemon and lime characters with a palate that offers zesty lemon flavours which combines well with the fresh acidity of the wine. The finish is long and offers some floral characters on the back palate.

FOOD Enjoy this classic example of Delatite Riesling with pan fried fish or richly flavoured roast chicken.
