2022 Foudre Ferment Riesling
Colour: Pale straw with flashes of silver
Bouquet: Bright lemon juice, with hints of flint, jasmine and white peach
Palate: Immediate bright mouth filling acids with lemon rind flavours and a touch of perfume, white flowers, granite and the faintest hint of soft oak.
The palate is long, full and lingers.
Cellaring:The aromatic characteristics of this wine are best appreciated in the short to medium term, but this wine will gain complexity over the next ten years or so. Drink now to 2034.
Pairing: Try it with uncomplicated fish dishes.
Vintage: Vintage 2022 began with a very cool spring, misty conditions and low hanging fog. Fruit flowering took some time due to the cooler conditions which is typical for the region after a larger vintage in 2021. Low crops resulted in high concentration of flavour in both the Great Western and Rhymney Riesling vineyards.
Region: Great Western, Victoria
Grape Variety: Riesling
Winemaker: Jacob Parton
