2014 Yealands Land Made Series Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is a zingy and dry Riesling with a real tang of lemon and lime. Its crisp and palate cleansing and would go very well with a seafood platter.

Winemaker's Notes

Thinking differently is what we do at Yealands. Crafting award-winning wines in harmony with nature has seen us lead the world in sustainable winegrowing. But most importantly, it means great tasting wines which don’t cost the earth.

The Yealands Estate Land Made Series is sourced from New Zealand’s leading wine regions. The winemakers have chosen to allow the land to tell its own story, selecting parcels of grapes carefully nurtured from the vine to the bottle. These individual parcels are skillfully combined to produce intense and authentic wines, reflective of their distinctively unique origin.

Nose: Offers lifted lemon and lime aromas, mixed with a hint of jasmine and elderflower.

Palate: This lush off-dry wine brims with citrus zest and honey flavours.

Food: Enjoy with spiced Asian-inspired cuisine.

Cellaring: Enjoy now, or cellar for up to 3 years.

Alcohol: 11.5%

Winemaking: The four Riesling blocks were harvested separately at perfect ripeness, pressed off gently then cold settled for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked carefully and inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture and enhance the aromatic Riesling flavours. A long cool fermentation took place over five weeks and stopped naturally when the alcohol, residual sugar and acidity were in perfect balance. The wine was then racked, stabilized and filtered prior to bottling.
