Freycinet Riesling
2017 Vintage
Freycinet Riesling

Classic, vibrant, juicy cool climate flavour!

The Tasmanian climate is ideal for producing fine elegant Rieslings with beautiful varietal definition. The aroma of fresh flowers with a hint of lime leap out of the glass. The elegant palate reveals rippling, juicy citrus flavours reminiscent of ripe lemons and limes combining with a crisp long taut after-taste.

While excellent drinking as a young wine it will develop slowly and beautifully over a 10 to 20 year period in good cellars at a constant cool temperature. With ageing, the wine takes up a more golden colour and develops gorgeous secondary characters of honey and toast.

Food and Wine Combinations

Riesling is versatile and can be enjoyed with or without food. Its lightness and crispness refreshes the palate and makes it ideal for quenching a thirst on a hot day or for accompanying light flavoured creamy or richly flavoured, classic European cordon bleu food recipes. With seafood it is simply sensational. Try with mild Asian dishes too.
