5-10. years under suitable conditions
Pale straw with green hue. Fragrant and floral with subtle orange blossom, citrus and wet slate nuances. Lemon, lime and a minerality supported by a balanced dry style. The acid and grape sweetness provides length, persistence and a wonderful mouth feel.
The 2017 – 2018 growing season was a contrast to the 2016-2017 growing season. Because of the lack of rainfall this resulted in reduced soil moisture which led to reduced yields but provided periods of mild vine stress and higher quality fruit. At Paulett Wines we do not irrigate our vines and this has resulted in the vine root structure developing to withstand irregular rainfall, heat waves and drought conditions superior to irrigated vineyards.
Food Pairing Notes
Riesling wines can be suitable to a full spectrum of food favourites. These include from tangy vinaigrette dressings to full-flavoured sauce laden chicken dishes and spicy meat and vegetable medleys. This is a "go to” white wine that will suit most foods, most of the time. A wonderfully versatile variety.
