2019 Valentine Riesling is layered and complex. Spontaneous fermentation by indigenous yeasts and arrested when sugar, acid and phenolics were all in balance. The colour shows its youth through a vibrant and bright hue. It exhibits a range of fresh characters on the nose including melon, nectarine and floral notes. There are hints of soft citrus in the background but this Riesling is not your typical lemon lime zing thing.
