Merrebee Estate 2000 Riesling
SILVER Class 5 Wine Show of Western Australia
Merrebee Estate 2000 Riesling
Vintage Conditions The growing season that produced the grapes to make this wine was cool. The cool summer ripened the grapes very slowly, which was favourable for maximum flavour development. The fruit was picked with good varietal characteristics evident and good natural acid.
Winemakers Comments The colour is bright pale lemon yellow. Intense tropical and floral aromas are evident. Hints of musk and honeysuckle. Medium to high activity. A fresh clean palate. Citrus and floral characters dominate with herbal notes. High intensity and excellent length.
Food Accompaniments Riesling is suited as an aperitiff with hors d'oeuvres and will also complement fish and Asian style dishes.
