Ostler Lakeside Riesling Spätlese 2020
Our Riesling Spätlese from 2015 was very popular and we think the 2020 vintage will prove equally enjoyable.
Tasting notes for the Ostler Riesling Spätlese 2020:
Pale straw with clear hues.
Fragrant with apple and citrus blossom, ripe golden peach, lemon curd and melon.
Sweet and silky entry with ripe mandarin, lime, melon, passionfruit and a touch of pink grapefruit. Beautifully balanced with generous fruit sweetness and bright acidity. Complex and long with a juicy, sweet stonefruit finish.
Food matches: Try it with a blue cheese.
Wine making notes:
The fruit is 100% hand harvested Riesling from the Waitaki. Harvest took place on April 26th 2020. The fruit was whole bunch pressed to a stainless steel tank for cold settling for two days. The juice was then racked and the juice inoculated with selected wine yeast. The cool fermentation was stopped to retain a Spätlese style.
Alcohol 8.65%, residual sugar 42 g/L
