BASCAND ESTATE RIESLING 


CURRENT VINTAGE

Bascand 2012 Estate Riesling Waipara

Tasting Notes: This is a bright, vibrant Riesling with aromas of limes and mandarin with subtle peach notes. The palate is fresh with well balanced acidity and finishes with a touch of sweetness. Great for afternoon sipping or match with fruit, cheese, salads, seafood or smoked and cured meats.

Wine Making: Ripe fruit was gently pressed to tank and enzyme settled for 48 hours prior to racking. The clear juice was inoculated and cool fermented until each parcel tasted in balance. The wine was allowed to rest on lees for three months with lees stirring on selected tanks. Immediately prior to bottling the wine was carefully blended, filtered and bottled. The grapes were harvested between 14 -18 April 2009.

Technical Notes: pH 3.10 TA 8.1g/L Alc 12.0% RS 15.8g/L

Food Match: Spicy fish curry with coconut rice and warm roti

Cellar Notes: Drink now but will reward cellaring for 5 – 7 years
