With aromas of fresh citrus fruit such as mandarin, lemon, and lime, and notes of passionfruit, boxwood and fresh cut grass. The palate has a mouth-watering acidity which lifts citrus and tropical flavours to match the nose. With complexity and texture from the Ripasso method, and a long finish. Enjoy now nicely chilled, through to 2022.
Varietals: Riesling 60%, Sauvignon Blanc 40%

The 2019 vintage saw warm and humid conditions throughout the summer resulting in the need for extra care and investment measures in the vineyard. Harvest was later than usual, but the fruit was healthy, flavourful and ripe. A Ripasso style wine with the Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc grapes harvested, pressed and fermented in stainless steel. The wine was then repassed over the skins and lees of our appassimento Sauvignon Blanc giving the wine added depth and flavour.
Very enjoyable on its own on the deck or patio. Pair with dishes such as fresh oysters, seared scallops, grilled shrimp, ceviche, fish and chips, roast chicken, Nicoise salad with seared tuna, or any dish you would squeeze fresh lemon on!
"Light in body but rich in flavour, this appasimento blend of riesling and sauvignon blanc offers great intensity and purity with notes of lime and tangerine along with a chalky minerality. Dry, refreshing and with both a lightly chalky and oily texture... 4/5 stars - Sara d'Amato, WineAlign
