Rikard Riesling

$35.00

A different approach to a conventional Riesling. Winemakers have chosen to balance the natural racy acidity of the variety not with sweetness, but with texture and mouthfeel. Still a Riesling but with more dimensions.

Description

Rikard Winery is producer of tiny parcels of ultra-premium, hand crafted wines from selected cool climate sites within the Orange wine region of NSW. It is the passionate endeavour of award winning winemaker William Rikard-Bell and his wife Kimberley.

A different approach to a conventional Riesling. Winemakers have chosen to balance the natural racy acidity of the variety not with sweetness, but with texture and mouthfeel. Still a Riesling but with more dimensions.

Vineyard: Cool climate, high altitude vineyards of Orange, NSW.
Bouquet: Kaffir lime, kumquats and orange blossom jump from the glass. Intense and aromatic nose.
Palate: The palate is taut, dry and saline. Citrus dominates the flavours. The mid-palate builds with a slight creamed honey richness and texture increasing to a finish that has you rubbing your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Grainy. Refreshing.
