Delamere Vineyards


2012 Naissante Riesling

2012 Naissante Riesling

Vintage Conditions

Northern Tasmania had average winter rainfall, increasing to above average in late spring, setting the scene for excellent growth as the weather warmed. Here at Delamere we had a slightly cooler than average season leaving the wines with crisp acidity and a taut structure that will see them age very gracefully.

 

Winemaking

The fruit for this wine was carefully hand harvested from a mature vineyard located in the Tamar Valley. The fruit was airbag pressed into a stainless steel tank to preserve primary fruit character. The fullness and texture of this wine was achieved through a cool long fermentation utilising wild yeast.

 

Tasting Notes

Fresh green apples with a subtle, creamy mouth feel. A fine streak of minerality and a long and balanced citrus finish.

 

Food matches

Best enjoyed with fresh seafood such as oysters and crayfish or with Asian inspired salads.
