2015 Ata Mara Riesling
Decanter 2016 Platinum Medal Winner
A single vineyard, single pick wine from the Ata Mara vineyard in Pisa.
Handpicked and delicately handled from grape to bottle this is pure Riesling that shows lovely varietal character while also expressing the delicacy of the site and the vintage.
The ferment was stopped to retain some residual fruit sweetness giving an off-dry wine.
Drink on release and over the next 3-7 years
This is coloured very pale straw with green rim, a bright and clear wine. A nose of spiced orange zest, nectarine, jasmine, honeysuckle and lime peel with some struck match, flint and smoke. Off-dry on the palate with lovely fruit weight balanced by a steely line of juicy acidity and an attractive chalky minerality on the finish. Great poise.
Residual Sugar - 16.4g/L
