The Watervale Riesling from Vinteloper has mouth-puckering acidity, beautifully balanced with fruity limes, green apples, jasmine flowers and a little whiff of petrol.
David Bowley, a self-confessed Riesling geek, aims to capture authentic Watervale characteristics. He picks the grapes early to have a lean, thirst-quenching limey and crunchy mineral style. Hand-harvested from a superb vineyard managed by a cherry farmer, destemmed and crushed, inoculated yeast fermentation in stainless
steel to allow for constant 12-14 degrees over approximately 4 weeks. Wine is unfined and undergoes natural filtration through addition of bentonite clay and long settling periods. Smidgeon of sulphur added on bottling solely to preserve the wine for longevity.
Pair with Choucroute, crab risotto, barbecued prawns and other full-flavoured seafood.
