Bannockburn Riesling 2020 750ml
A classic, off-dry Riesling
We make a total of four different Rieslings at Carrick. The Bannockburn Riesling is our most “classic” in style, sitting somewhere in the middle of Josephine’s pristine fruit aromatics and lush mouthfeel, and the Dry’s lean acidity.
A classic, off-dry Riesling, with notes of orange blossom and lime. Long and intense, enjoy it now or age for 10+ years – that is the beauty of Riesling.
Our Riesling parcel is planted entirely on its own roots and benefits from this direct connection with the earth. Each vine is carefully tended by hand during the season, then hand-picked to drop any fruit that is not up to par. Once at the winery the fruit is whole-bunch pressed to retain the clarity of fruit aromas. Made entirely in tank, using wild yeast, the ferment is halted when the right balance of sugar to acid is found.
"90/100 Fresh, bright and tangy riesling with lime, citrus, mandarin, oyster-shell and subtle apricot flavours. Made in a medium-dry style with pleasing sweet-and-sour tension. Bright acidity helps drive a lengthy finish." - Bob Campbell -
