Pikes Olga Emmie Riesling 2023


This is based on a half dry Spatlese style from Germany, so we have gentle sweetness. It is a refreshing style and offers a clean, dry finish. Free run juice only, from Estate fruit, the fermentation was halted when the required level of residual sweetness was achieved – in this vintage, that was 46.7 grams/litre. This is trout stream clear. The nose is delightfully fragrant with citrus notes, florals, wet river stones and a minerally backing. Very gentle sweetness, it is alluring drinking now, offering decent length and good balance. Now for six years.
