2015 Delatite Estate Riesling

The fruit was hand-picked in late March and early April, whole bunch pressed and allowed to briefly settle. This removes the heavy solids from the juice, whilst retaining many of the lighter solids that are a wonderful source of nutrient for the yeast.

A small portion of the wine was fermented in large old oak puncheons to add some further complexity to the wine. All of the juice was fermented by our natural wild yeasts and then racked off its lees at the end of fermentation. The wine was prepared for bottling without any further ‘manipulation’, other than filtration to retain the pristine character of our delicate Riesling.

The nose of this wine shows lovely delicate floral aromatics that are typical of all Delatite Rieslings whilst the palate has layers of lemon rind and lemon blossom with fine talcy structure and a fresh acid finish.

This wine can be drunk in its youth, but like all great Rieslings, it will age easily for ten years. Should be wonderful for up to twenty years, developing fabulous toasty honey characters, that Riesling is famous for.

F O O D  A perfect accompaniment to natural oysters or white fleshed fish.

    This drop from Delatite rivals all those Clare and Eden Valley rieslings that usually take the limelight. Crisp and refreshing with beautiful aromatic nose and amazing cellaring potential. The 2012 vintage tastes fantastic. I look forward to reporting back how well it’s drinking in 2023.
