Mayhem & Co Hipster Eden Valley Riesling
You'll find no goatees or waistcoats on this dry style of riesling, but what you will find is bright smells of lemons, limes and Granny Smith apples, with just a touch of jasmine florals. The palate is light-bodied and zippy, with citrus and orchard fruit flavours, a delicate touch of creaminess, and a lick of ginger on the long, lip-smacking finish.
Hipster Riesling 2012 is a dazzling, contemporary interpretation of one of the world's noblest white varieties. From a single, cool-climate Eden Valley vineyard, this wine has been fermented to complete dryness.
On the nose it evokes newly ripe lemons and a bouquet of lavender and apple blossoms.
On the palate, a steely, tongue-tingling green-apple mouth feel provides a lengthy acidic backbone to pears, pineapples and an alluring spiciness from the lees contact. The perfect wine to cellar with a tight acidic structure this wine will develop gracefully in the bottle for many years to come.
