Slow Wine Co Riesling 2021


A fine Riesling from the cooler climes of the Orange region in NSW, from the Bantry Grove Vineyard at an elevation of 960 metres. Whole bunch pressed and then fermented in an equal mix of stainless steel and French oak. An appealing pale lemon hue with lovely aromatics wafting through orange rind, citrus, florals and frangipani notes. Gentle structure with fine balance and bright though slightly green apple acidity. Excellent length and there is a hint of a steely backing. The long finish is matched by the intensity. This is a ten to fifteen year proposition with immaculate balance a highlight.
