About

Rock Ferry Trig Hill Riesling

A variety making something of a comeback, but for Rock Ferry it never really went away!  The style of this Riesling is to retain the pure fruit from the vineyard with a hint of sweetness and fine acid giving a linear structure.  20% of the grapes were fermented in older French oak and underwent malolactic fermentation.  The wine was matured on fine lees for 6 months prior to bottling.

Taste
This wine shows the vineyard really well - mineral & slate characters with fresh cut lime notes. The palate is balanced by generous fruit weight and lively acidity. Added earthy complexities and an unctuous texture from the oaked portion give the wine an edge and at the same time bring it into balance. The result is a very pleasing structure which flows to a refined textural finish with flavours of limes blended with honeysuckle, herb and flinty mineral notes.
