Early Mist Riesling
Bottle Number: 135
A highly terroir expressive cultivar, this Riesling is produced in a typical German kabinett style with an off-dry residual sugar.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from the Vrede en Lust Elgin farm, Casey’s Ridge. Most Rieslings are consumed when they are young, showing the most aromatic characteristics.
The 2015 Riesling was awarded Gold at the 2016 Michelangelo Awards, Silver at the 2015 IWSC and received the SA Region Terroir Award in 2015.
The wine was fermented at very low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was stopped at the desired sugar levels, resulting in an elegant, off-dry style wine.
