The Yard Riesling 2013, Riversdale Vineyard, Frankland River

Tasting notes

The gentle bouquet of pristine lime, apple blossom and honeysuckle aromatics can be found on the nose. Grapefruit, citrus tang and guava, overlaid with white pepper and wet stone comes through on the palate. A long, clean acidity aids the longevity of this wine.

Producer note

Named 'Winery of the Year' in James Halliday's 2011 Wine Companion, Larry Cherubino wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He believes in spending time in the vineyard, in paying attention to canopy and water management, and most importantly, picking at the right time with minimal interference in the winery. From delicate whites to big reds his wines have class and finesse.

Soil

Red Loam/Laterite.

Vinification

Harvested at night, then gently de-stemming the grapes by hand ensures only the very best fruit is chosen for this wine. Only the free run portion of the juice was used for this wine. All natural yeasts combined with long, cool fermentation at 10-12 degrees - ensured that the essence of the fruit was captured.

Grape

Riesling 100%

Food match

Braised pork cheek & rabbit terrine, toasted baguette.
