Meldville Riesling 2019

$20.00

A classic dry Riesling made by top-notch winemaker Derek Barnett.  This white wine is a very pale yellow colour with green hints which are typical for Riesling.  The aromas are pretty and elegant with green apple, yellow plum and white floral notes. 

The palate is beautifully balanced with flavours of crunchy green and yellow apple, green plum and lots of citrus notes on the finish!

This would pair amazingly with a charcuterie platter on a sunny afternoon. It would also pair well sushi.

Availability: 3 in stock (can be backordered)

Winemakers Notes:

Growing conditions in the spring of 2019 were quite slow with cooler weather and lots of moisture delaying budbreak and slowing early spring growth. June turned out to be warmer than on record which helped the vines growth. In fact we had some quite hot spells throughout the month giving great flowering conditions. The rest of the summer was mainly sunny and warm with just enough moisture for steady development of the vines. Ideal conditions for grapegrowing.  September was cooler, yet mainly sunny giving a great beginning to the harvest season.

Derek reports that the 2019 harvest was especially good for Riesling grapes with cooler temperatures allowing for slow ripening resulting in amazing flavours and keeping the acid balanced without high sugar development.
