TASTING NOTE

Westend Estate Cool Climate Riesling is pale straw in appearance showing vibrant green tinges. The aromatic nose that leaps out of the glass and develops with intensity shows concentrated lime juice flavours, lemons and hints of underlying spice. A beautifully fresh and lively palate exhibits textured layers of that are tightly bound by a backbone of lime zest.

The Riesling is made with the gentlest of handling preserving the delicate fruit flavours. Harvested in the cool of the night, the fruit is gently destemmed, crushed and pressed in an air bag press. The juice is cold settled and using only the clear juice is fermented slowly at cool temperatures until dry. The wine is then carefully stabilised and filtered before bottling, ensuring that all the fruit flavours are captured.
