Bascand Estate - Riesling (Waipara) 2012Fresh Palate
This is a bright, vibrant Riesling with aromas of limes and mandarin with subtle peach notes.
The palate is fresh with well balanced acidity and finishes with a touch of sweetness.
Great for afternoon sipping or match with fruit, cheese, salads, seafood or smoked and cured meats.
Ripe fruit was gently pressed to tank and enzyme settled for 48 hours prior to racking. The clear juice was inoculated and cool fermented until each parcel tasted in balance.
The wine was allowed to rest on lees for three months with lees stirring on selected tanks. Immediately prior to bottling the wine was carefully blended, filtered and bottled.
The grapes were harvested between 14 -18 April 2009.
