100% Riesling. Brilliant water like colour with greenish tinged edges. Nosing reveals lime and red apple aromas followed by some orange blossom, mandarin and light mineral notes. Zippy lime and green apple fruits race across the palate with subtle honeysuckle, orange blossom and flinty mineral undertones. Finishes off dry with zesty acidity and an energetic aftertaste. Rieslingfreak No.5 is made from the family vineyard, but with the grapes harvested from a vineyard with lighter soils therefore providing a lighter style of wine. The grapes are harvested earlier in the season, to provide a wine that is slightly less in alcohol. Being ‘off dry’ the sugar level can vary each vintage, pending on the season, normally between 11-15g/L. The sugar is balanced nicely with the acid, providing a fruit driven style with a hint of sweetness. The wine drinks well on release, or will reward with cellaring. ABV 10%
